Summary
Explores the history of lynching from the colonial era to the present. American lynch law has rested on three pillars: the frontier experience, racism, and the anti-authoritarian spirit of grassroots democracy. Looks beyond the familiar story of mob violence against African American victims, who comprised the majority of lynch targets, to include violence targeting other victim groups, such as Mexicans and the Chinese, as well as many of those cases in which race did not play a role. Focuses on the societal changes that ended lynching as a public spectacle and concludes with an examination of lynching's legacy in American culture
