CHOICE Review

More than 50 race riots occurred in the US between 1898 and 1945. Twenty-five occurred in 1919 alone. Collins (McKendree Univ.) finds discernible patterns that bring together national concerns and individual local circumstances. She defines structural factors, cultural framing, and precipitating events, providing context to explain why whites rioted against blacks during the period. Through case studies of 12 of these riots, half of them from the Red Summer of 1919, she develops the cultural, social, economic, and political factors that comprise her paradigm. The narratives of the case studies and the comparative analysis are useful. The short book serves as a scholarly addition to the literature, but its more important contribution is as a reference-works source. In this capacity, the exhaustive bibliography provides an excellent compendium of the scholarship on the topic. On the more negative side, the author's attempt to draw lessons from more recent race confrontations is facile. This is a very useful reference source for libraries at all levels and is recommended in that capacity. Summing Up: Recommended. General readers and undergraduate students. J. P. Dunn Converse College
