 The Turner Diaries is a 1978 novel by William Luther Pierce about a violent overthrow of the U.S. government that leads to a race war and the extermination of non-white races. Pages of the book were found in the car Timothy McVeigh was driving 90 minutes after he carried out the Oklahoma City Bombing in 1995. John William King, one of three men who murdered James Byrd Jr., a disabled black man, in 1998 by chaining him by his ankles to the back of a pickup truck and dragging him for several miles, reportedly said: "We're starting 'the Turner Diaries' early," while dragging Byrd's body behind the truck. The novel is also thought to be the inspiration for the neo-Nazi organization The Order, which had the same name as an organization in the novel, and was responsible for the 1984 murder of Jewish radio host Alan Berg.
