Roots of Violence in Black Philadelphia 1860-1900. [signed 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)

Signed and dated by the author on the free, front endpaper.
