During the early many years of the twenty-first century, building on the rich work with the postbellum Southern done into the 1990s as well as the growing scholarship on legislation and society, historians continued to explore the partnership of lynching into the growth of the unlawful justice system but broadened analysis of US mob physical violence to encompass areas beyond the Southern and eras ahead of the belated nineteenth century.

My 2004 monograph, Rough Justice, examined the connection of collective murder to local countries across the postbellum usa. Rough Justice found significant incidence of lynching within the Midwest, the western, therefore the Southern, although not into the Northeast, and argued that lynching developed away from a battle that is cultural the changing nature of unlawful justice. The contention over criminal law pitted due procedure reformers whom emphasized the safeguarding of appropriate procedure as well as the amelioration of unseemly general general public punishment through the reform regarding the death penalty against “rough justice” enthusiasts whom desired ritualized and racialized retribution.
