Book Review of Arc of Justice : A Saga of Race, Civil Rights, and Murder in the Jazz Age

Arc of Justice : A Saga of Race, Civil Rights, and Murder in the Jazz Age
reviewed on + 6 more book reviews


I learned a great deal by reading this book: the active political presence of the Ku Klux Klan in Michigan in the 1920's; the extent to which housing segregation was promoted by realtors, city officials, police, and banks; the rock star aura of Clarence Darrow. The book is written from an historian's point of view: footnotes refer to extensive research in the local newspapers of the time, court and police records, and private letters.
