Overview

Lynching in the New South: Georgia and Virginia, 1880-1930

In 1905, the sociologist James Cutler observed, 'It has been said that our country's national crime is lynching.' If lynching was a national crime, it was a southern obsession.Based on an analysis of nearly six hundred lynchings, this volume offers a new, full appraisal of the complex character of lynching.
