Abstract

JOURNAL OF THE EARLY REPUBLIC (Fall 2013) Not every book must be written for everyone. In the Shadow of the Gallows clearly belongs to a discussion among experts. Nevertheless, it seems a shame that this book will probably never be assigned to or read by undergraduates. So many students today report their own experiences with the judicial system, live in its shadows, or remain naive about the ¨ ways in which racism infects their own understanding of the world. As DeLombard points out, the stereotype of black men as inherently criminal still pervades American popular culture. Studies such as hers suggest both the reasons and the background for that misfortune. Le igh Foug ht is an assistant professor at Le Moyne College in Syracuse, New York. She is the author of Southern Womanhood and Slavery: A Biography of Louisa S. McCord (Columbia, MO, 2003). She was an associate editor on the first volume of correspondence of the Frederick Douglass Papers and is currently at work on Frederick Douglass's Women, forthcoming from Oxford University Press. Buried Lives: Incarcerated in Early America. Edited by Michele Lise Tarter and Richard Bell. (Athens: The University of Georgia Press, 2012. Pp. 303. Cloth,
