The Tragedy of Lynching

Front Cover
UNC Press Books, Oct 10, 2017 - History - 510 pages
This book deals with the quest for a preventive to lynching which can be undertaken only after one has an understanding of what it is that is to be prevented. This necessary analysis of lynching--its background, circumstances, and meaning--introduces many baffling elements. The author has made a detailed study of the lynchings of 1930 in an effort to find an answer to the complexities of the problem.

Originally published in 1933.
