    A good biography and bibliographical work

    I thoroughly enjoyed this biography of (now the late) Dr. William Pierce, although it was rather 'friendly' and omitted some important negatives on him and his organization. Also it sadly lacks illustrations which I think would have greatly benefited this book. Above all I think this biography is very useful in that it very capably presents and analyzes the many outstanding books and ideas which helped to form the views and philosophy of Dr. Pierce, leading the reader into wholly new avenues of reading matter, viewpoints, thoughts, and areas of study.

    An enjoyable and educational read.

    I liked the book because it was informative, well written, and the author remained neutral on the issues and left the judging of William Pierce and his organization the National Alliance up to the reader. If you believe that the United States is fragmenting politically, racially, and economically then the $8.00 to buy this book will be a good investment. The reason why is because the opinions that Pierce espouses in this book are growing, and not just in this country but worldwide. Let's face it, if we want to know the whole story then we will have to find it out on our own, we certainly won't get it from the major media.

    A Voice Crying in the Wilderness

    A fascinating view of one of America's most controversial and influential political activists. I am amazed at the depth of insight and knowledge that Dr Pierce possesses regarding the realities, trends and shaping forces in contemporary America and the ultimate impact these forces will have on European-Americans as a distinct and unique people. If you thought Pierce was just a 'Hater,' think again (if you dare).

    I am surprised to have liked the book and Mr. Pierce

    I would have not normally have bought a book on this kind of topic, but a friend of mine recomended it to me so i decided to get it. Its a very controversial book, to say the least, and it indeed gave me a fresh look upon the society we live in. And definetely from a TRULY DIFFERENT point of view.

    A title to stay

    Robert Griffin's The Fame of a Dead Man's Deeds is a timely classics that explores the racial, social, political issues in contemporary America through the portrait of William Pierce. The book is engaging and fascinating and is a title you won't forget for a long time.
