Red Summer reviewed by The Journal of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era

“McWhirter’s book is thoroughly researched, listing an impressive thirty-four libraries and archives in the bibliography, and its author displays a keen knowledge of the literature on race produced during the Red Summer era and since…Using a journalist’s clipped sentences and dividing the chapters into short sections, McWhirter packed in as much human drama as possible to vividly explicate the tangled web of economic, political, and cultural factors at work in the conflagration…The book deserves wide readership.”
–Adam J. Hodges
