Using the Philadelphia Native American Riots of 1844 as his model, Professor Feldberg analyzes and contrasts the varieties of collective violence--ethnic, religious, racial, economic, political, vigilante--that beset American cities during the first half of the nineteenth century. In focusing on specific historical events that have much broader significance, Professor Feldberg provides a succinct, readable book that will be of interest to students of American history and criminal justice. A bibliographical essay is included.
