MetadataShow full item record
From the Foreword: The purpose of this book is educational. Its editors believe publicity is the surest cure for lawlessness. The story of the riot has its lessons for all thinking citizens. The dramatic facts of the mob scenes are herein set forth in word and picture, with the view of stimulating serious thought and a possible probe into conditions that seem to foster anarchy. The student of sociology will find herein facts to fit his wildest theories. The psychologist will be interested in the mental reactions of the mob to the circumstantial stimuli. The layman will exercise a righteous curiosity in the hope of learning why law-abiding men and women become as wild beasts under the influence of the mob idea. If this little book will only make the public mind less sluggish, then its publishers will feel that they have amply been repaid for their efforts.
