A superb book, a beautifully crafted biography, and one that tells a highly important story about race, sex and gender, violence, and the law in the twentieth-century South. -- Suzanne Lebsock Rutgers University

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on May 6, 2000
Format: Paperback
I used this book to write my senior thesis, and it really helped me with a comprehensive analysis of the social backgrounds of post-civil war (and post-slavery) racism, violence and gender relations. It really emphasizes the link between lynching and the "cult of southern womanhood" neccesary for white southern men to maintain social dominance once slavery ended and women began to desire political independence. Well written and thought provoking!
