Editorial Reviews

Review

"A valuable, and in some ways unprecedented, study. Its creation of a detailed socio-legal portrait of a Mississippi county from myriad court records contributes significantly to our understanding of southern criminal justice and violence." -- Michael J. Pfeifer, H-Net Book Review "Adds a legal and community angle to the current historical literature... Documents how whites in Mississippi made a conscious choice to turn to folk violence (not an unthinking one) based on decades of distrust in formal law." -- Rhonda Y. Williams, Journal of Social History ADVANCE PRAISE "Waldrep has written the most detailed and nuanced study of crime in a Southern community. His deep research, originality, and fairness marks every page." -- Edward L. Ayers, author of Southern Crossing: A History of the American South
