Summary
In October 1871, a simmering, small-scale turf war involving three Chinese gangs exploded into a riot that engulfed the small but growing town of Los Angeles. A large mob of white Angelenos, spurred by racial resentment, rampaged through the city and lynched some eighteen people before order was restored. This book offers a compelling account of this little-known event, which ranks among the worst hate crimes in American history
