Malcolm McLaughlin's work presents a detailed analysis of the East St. Louis race riot in 1917, offering new insights into the construction of white identity and racism. He illuminates the "world of East St Louis", life in its factories and neighborhoods, its popular culture, and City Hall politics, to place the race riot in the context of the city's urban development.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is a book that I have been waiting for someone to write for years - it fills a gaping hole in the scholarship on riots, class, and race in the progressive era. McLaughlin's book is important history. It's also important social policy and it should occupy an important place in the reparations debate, as we hear more about lawsuits and political action for victims of Jim Crow era violence." - Alfred L. Brophy, Professor of Law, University of Alabama and author of Reconstructing the Dreamland: The Tulsa Riot of 1921 and Reparations

"This is a worthwhile contribution to the study of collective violence and should be read by those interested in social history and American studies." - James N. Upton, Ohio State University
