Editorial Reviews

Review

"An absolutely remarkable work. Goldsby argues that lynching was not a phenomenon that can be explained solely by appeals to psychoanalytic theory, nor can it be seen as a purely regional event confined to the South. Instead, lynching is best understood when historicized, placed firmly in the political, economic, and social contexts of American modernity. This is an extraordinary book that affects the reader on so many different registers - the political, the logical, and the emotional." - Carla L. Peterson, University of Maryland"
