About the Author:

Clare V. McKanna Jr. is the author of Homicide, Race, and Justice in the American West. His essays on ethnicity, violence, prison, and homicide have appeared in numerous academic journals, including Western Historical Quarterly, Pacific Historical Review, American Indian Quarterly, Journal of San Diego History, and Western Legal History. He is lecturer in departments of history and American Indian studies at San Diego State University.

Review:

"McKanna's research... implicitly and explicitly illustrates how much violent activity was once interracial, as contrasted with contemporary statistics indicating that homicide within racial or ethnic groups is more often the norm.... McKanna concludes his study with an engaging foray into the occasionally contentious discussions about the extent of violence in the West. In providing a detailed account of how whites won the struggle for power in the courts, McKanna's work is significant."

Book Description University of Nevada Press, United States, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Nineteenth-century California was a society in turmoil, with a rapidly growing population, booming mining camps, insufficient or nonexistent law-enforcement personnel, and a large number of ethnic groups with differing attitudes toward law and personal honor. Violence, including murder, was common, and legal responses varied broadly.Available now for the first time in paperback, Race and Homicide in Nineteenth-Century California examines coroners inquest reports, court case files, prison registers, and other primary and printed sources to analyze patterns of homicide and the state s embryonic justice system. Author Clare V McKanna discovers that the nature of crimes varied with the ethnicity of perpetrators and victims, as did the conduct and results of trials and sentencing patterns. He presents specific case studies and a vivid portrait of an unruly society in flux. Enhanced with testimony from contemporary sources and illustrated with period photographs, this study richly portrays a frontier society where the law was neither omnipotent nor impartial.
