Synopsis:

This book deals with the panics which swept Southern Rhodesia in the period from 1902 until the mid 1930s. The supposed sexual threat posed by the proximity of black men and white women. It also resulted in the execution of innocent men for the crimes of rape and attempted rape. The panics, which were known as Black Peril, were complex events which encompass such topics as the management of venereal disease, the politics of concubinage, and the construction of whiteness.

Book Description Indiana Univ. Press, 2000. Hardcover / Hardback. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. First edition. Hardback. In the period from 1902 until the mid-1930s, Southern Rhodesia was swept by a series of panics, known by the name Black Peril, that were precipitated by the presumed sexual threat posed by black men to white women. Tension over Black Peril provoked a flood of legislation designed to control the sexuality of African men and women and the sexual "transgressions" of white females, including the introduction of the death penalty for attempted rape. Over the next decades more than 20 men were executed, though many were innocent of any serious crime. As the author shows, the panics were complex events which encompassed such issues as miscegenation, prostitution, the management of venereal disease, the politics of concubinage, and the construction of whiteness. The response of state and civil society to those controversies sought to establish the boundaries of race, class, and gender, and it demonstrated an attempt by white males to claim their exclusive rights as citizens and as masters over the bodies of women. Driven by fear and the desire for retribution, the panics also involved very real demonstrations of state power. They served the interests of the white community by dramatising the dangers it faced, thereby giving it some leverage against its enemies. But as this history shows, those gains came only at a price. With Notes, Bibliog. and Index. 272pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. in F. dw. Bookseller Inventory # 16012
