Roots of Violence in Black Philadelphia 1860-1900. (Signed)
Signed and dated by the author. “Lane reveals how social and economic discrimination created a black criminal subculture. This subculture, overlooked by those histories depending on often inaccurate census materials, eroded family patterns, encouraged violence, discouraged efforts at middle-class respectability, and intensified employment problems by adding white fear to the white prejudice that had helped to create it.” (dust jacket)
