Cover for RUDWICK: Race Riot at East St. Louis, July 2, 1917

Race Riot at East St. Louis, July 2, 1917

". . . a well-researched and thoughtful inquiry into the circumstances and social forces producing one of the most violent of twentieth-century American race riots."
-- American Historical Review

"His work fills a serious gap in the history of racial violence in the United States. Never before analyzed by sociologists in the way that the Chicago and Detroit riots were, the East St. Louis riot outranked both as measured by the number of deaths."
-- American Journal of Sociology
