Silvan Niedermeier, »Rassismus und Bürgerrechte« reviewed in H-Soz-Kult

Manfred Berg (author of »Popular Justice: A History of Lynching in America«, published in German by Hambruger Edition) has reviewed Silvan Niedermeier's »Rassismus und Bürgerrechte. Polizeifolter im Süden der USA 1930-1955« in H-Soz-Kult and notes:

»Silvan Niedermeier's study is an important contribution to the history of racial violence in the American South, which fills a gap in research by utilizing a broad base of empirical evidence. The book is written in a highly readable, precise, and vivid style and offers plausible evidence backed by sources to support its main arguments. I hope that, in the interests of the author and interested readers, that an English-language edition of this work will be made available to the American public.«
