Reviews

"Elinor Langer is one of our most eloquent and astute social critics. Telling this troubling story of murder and racism in an American town, she compels us to think beyond that, to wonder about the future of justice in our country." --Howard Zinn, author of A People's History of the United States

"Haunting...a book that looks deep below the surface to reveal confounding information from many sides...a riveting work that avoids easy answers in its examination of the forces of hate, the aftermath of violence, and the imposition of justice." --John Marshall, Seattle Post-Intelligencer

"Utterly well-written, utterly fascinating...an absolutely top-drawer exploration of racist politics and its strange players, who remain legion." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"There are works of journalism so intelligent, scrupulous, thorough, and deep that they outlive their occasions and instantly rise to the level of classics. Elinor Langer's A Hundred Little Hitlers is [in] this very rare company. This is not the investigation of a murder: it is an investigation of a society." --Todd Gitlin, author of Media Unlimited
