Having found very little about the Atlanta Race Riot of 1906, imagine my delight at coming across "Negrophobia. There's so little about this event that anything would have been fine, but Bauerlein's study is exhaustive and a damn good read. The author made the wise choice of spending considerable time setting the scene, looking at the entire cast of characters and 1906 Atlanta. Mark Bauerlein has produced an impressive analysis of black intellectual history at the turn of the century. His observations are precise, and his reconstruction of events vivid. I recommend this book highly.

Mark Bauerlein, Negrophobia: A Race Riot in Atlanta, 1906, Encounter Books, 2001, 337 pp. Since the 1960s, race riots have consisted of blacks burning and looting their own neighborhoods, and attacking any whites they find. Racial mob violence has become a black monopoly threatened only occasionally by Hispanic rioters. It was not always so. From the period after the War Between the States until the 1940s, race riots meant whites attacking blacks, usually in black areas. The last such riot took place in Detroit on June 20, 1943, when white mobs fought blacks in various parts of town, and even.

Bauerlein’s Negrophobia: A Race Riot in Atlanta, 1906, which details the riot and the events and social conditions that led up to it, was published last month by Encounter Books of San Francisco. Written as a chronological narrative that often takes on the nuances of a novel, the book traces the eponymic social condition that gradually took hold of the city in the months leading up to the riot-which officially claimed 12 lives, though Bauerlein believes the actual toll to be much higher, especially black deaths. Throughout its history, Atlanta has prided itself on being the kind of city where.

At the beginning of the twentieth century, Atlanta was regarded as the gateway to the new, enlightened and racially progressive South. But in 1906, in a bitter gubernatorial contest, Georgia politicians played the race card and white supremacists trumpeted a "Negro crime" scare.

At the beginning of the twentieth century, Atlanta was regarded as the gateway to the new, enlightened and racially progressive South. White business owners employed black workers and made their fortunes, while black leaders led congregations, edited periodicals, and taught classes. But in 1906, in a bitter gubernatorial contest, Georgia politicians played the race card and white supremacists trumpeted a "Negro crime" scare. Seizing on rumors of black predation against white women, they launched a campaign based on fears of miscegenation and white subservience. Atlanta slipped into a climate of racial phobia and sexual hysteria that culminated in a bloody riot, which stymied race relations for fifty years. Drawing on new archival materials, Mark Bauerlein traces the origins, development and brutal climax of Atlanta's descent into hatred and violence in the fateful summer of 1906. "Negrophobia" is history at its best--a dramatic moment in time impeccably recreated in a suspenseful narrative, focusing on figures such as Booker T. Washington and W. E. B. DuBois; author Margaret Mitchell and future NAACP leader Walter White; and an assortment of black victims and white politicians who witnessed and participated in this American tragedy.

For people interested in the 1906 Atlanta Race Riot--long ignored by the city "too busy to hate"-- I recommend this book. It has an excellent, comprehensive account of the political exploitation, racism, and sexual hysteria leading up to the riot. Where other books only mention the post-riot political consequences and machinations, Bauerlein goes into much detail. Like other writers, however, he does not devote enough space to the lives of the black victims after the riot. What exactly happened to the survivors who remained in the city? What was their relationship with their white employers after the riot? What do the children of the victims (except for the relatives of Walter White) have to say about the effect on their families? As documentation of a shameful event in the history of Atlanta, the south, and the U. S., however, Negrophobia is well worth the read.

Scrupulously researched and well written "Negrophobia" is a gripping recount of the events prior to, during, and after Atlanta's 1906 Race Riot; a long neglected chapter of Atlanta's history. Bauerlein does an outstanding job of putting that era in context, especially the events in Georgia and Atlanta that led to, and created the environment for the riot. The race-baiting gubernatorial election of 1906, the rampant yellow journalism hyping black-on-white violence, and Thomas Dixon's "The Klansman" all play a part in creating the toxic brew. Bauerlein thankfully includes a Dramatis Personae at the front of the book so readers can keep central historical figures easily identifiable. The action is broken into four logically titled components: Prelude, Riot, Aftermath, and Epilogue. This simple elegant construction serves the native well, recreating the Atlanta of 1906, setting the riot in motion, and speaking of its aftermath. Bauerlein wisely lets the principals speak in their own words and betrays no bias towards or against anyone or anything, remaining a neutral voice leaving the reader to draw their own conclusions. Buerlein is unsparing in his recounting the events of the riot in a way that can send chills down your spine and this book isn't for faint-hearts, yet is not needlessly gory. The book fairly crackles with energy and drama but those easily offended by racism would best avoid it as Bauerlein doesn't shy away from exploring and explaining it. I immensely enjoyed this book and can't help but praise Bauerlein's writing and scrupulous research.
