"A significant contribution to the field of racial violence and the understanding of the history of Kansas in the post-Civil War period...This Is Not Dixie secures the University of Illinois Press's dominance as a publisher of scholarship on racial violence in the post-Civil War era. Highly recommended."--Choice
"When discussing lynching, race riots, and other forms of racist violence in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the emphasis often turns southward. Brent Campney's This Is Not Dixie builds on current historiography by challenging these assumptions... This work provides timely insights into racist violence in the North."--Civil War Book Review
"Campney exposes the shameful extent of violence in our past and also highlights the episodes of actions against such violence by law enforcement officers and by the African American community. Others should follow his lead to rediscover the world of law, race, and violence that shaped the past and continues to shape the present."--American Historical Review
"Campney has written an amazing and profound book that challenges many assumptions regarding racist violence in America, putting both the Midwest and the South in a deeper, richer context. This Is Not Dixie will no doubt inspire similar state-level studies."--Journal of Southern History
