The Turner Diaries

From the Collection: The Library

Could a single book inspire deadly terror?

The Turner Diaries has been tied to nearly 200 murders, including those committed by Timothy McVeigh when he bombed the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. This new short film from American Experience, featuring an interview with J.M. Berger, an extremism fellow at The Hague, chronicles the adherents to the book and their crimes, while illuminating rare footage of The Turner Diaries author, William Pierce.
