This book deals with the inherent violence of "race relations" in two important countries that remain iconic expressions of white supremacy in the twentieth century. Cultures of Violencedoes not just reconstruct the era of violence. Instead it convincingly contrasts the "lynch culture" of the American South to the "bureaucratic culture of violence" in South Africa. By contrasting mobs of rope-wielding white Southerners to the gun-toting policemen and administrators who formally defended white supremacy in South Africa, Cultures of Violenceemploys racial killing as an optic for examining the distinctive logic of the racial state in the two contexts.  Combining the historian's eye for detail with the sociologist's search for overarching claims, the book explores the systemic connections among three substantive areas to explain why contrasting traditions of racial violence took such firm root in the American South and South Africa.
