Synopsis

Scholarship on lynching has typically been confined to the extralegal execution of African Americans in the American South. The nine essays collected here look at lynching in the context of world history, requiring scholars to rethink the history of collective violence altogether. Employing a diverse range of case studies, the volume's contributors work to refute the notion that the various acts of group homicide called ""lynching"" in American history are unique or exceptional.
