McKanna (history, San Diego State U.) provides a detailed study of homicide patterns in Douglas County, Nebraska; Las Animas County, Colorado; and Gila County, Arizona from 1880 to 1920. Using data including coroners' inquests and records of indictments, plea bargains, and sentences and comparing them across racial and regional lines, the author shows how what criminal justice there was weighted heavily in favor of defendants who were white.
