This book examines the manner in which the national media in the United States treated lynching and vigilante activity between 1850-1940. A social constructionist perspective, developed by Gamson and Modigliani, is utilized to determine media orientation toward lynching. This perspective emphasizes the importance of media framing, sponsor and opponent activity, and media balance. Since not all lynching incidents can be studied, critical discourse moments are selected.

Review:

"... Dr. Wasserman's analysis is useful not only to those interested in how the media constructs meaning to social events, but also to constructing an understanding of the social forces behind the perpetuation of lynching well into the twentieth century..." - Professor Steven Stack, Wayne State University"
