"Steeped in a Culture of Violence is an important contribution to the interdisciplinary study of murder and racial violence in recent Texas history. The various chapters cover a wide range of violent crime and help unpack why certain types of violence are so much more frequent in Texas than in other parts of the industrialized world. Highly recommended."-William D. Carrigan, author of Forgotten Dead: Mob Violence against Mexicans in the United States, 1848-1928
