The culmination of nearly a decade of research in regional archives and census bureaus, Buried in the Bitter Waters presents irrefutable evidence of brutal attacks on blacks by ordinary white Americans. The property-burnings, assaults, and killings occurred between the period of Reconstruction and the Great Depression, and no part of the U.S. was immune. The violence was largely successful in its aim of driving blacks out of areas. More troubling, Jaspin's research indicates those areas most effected remain largely white, making his findings not merely an interesting historical exposé but a troubling commentary on the ongoing state of race relations in the U.S.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Teresa | 12/4/2013

    " Interesting new book on racial cleansing in parts of the United States. Not just racism, but wiping out black populations in certain parts of the country, which remain white to this day. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynne | 5/11/2013

    " This more a collection of events than an analysis of the events but the sheer number of the events builds a disturbing history. What is perhaps more horrifying than the events of the early twentieth century is the attitude of current residents of these towns. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Collette | 4/8/2013

    " an account of the racial cleansing that occured in the united states focusing on counties that drove out black people "

    " Excellent audio book. Important history. "

    " This book was an amazing eye opener into American History. This is the bases for my future dissertation. Be on the look out for Hesley R. Keenan Jr.'s first published work on this topic. :-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jonathan Biddle | 6/8/2012

    " A very eye-opening book (to sound clicheish) about racial cleansing in America. It made me grieve the lingering effects of racism in my own heart. Overall a good read, even if the stories did seem a little scattered and jolting at times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 7/18/2011

    " Wow - another eyeopener! I never heard about these incidents. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joe McDonald | 5/25/2011

    " This book really opened my eyes to the history of racial cleansing throughout the history of the US. I never knew what blacks had to go through! What a horrible bit of history! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela Wade | 4/22/2011

    " 4.5 stars. Engaging, infinitely readable, and filled with history you probably haven't heard about anywhere else. Had to take a half a star away for the lack of pictures, because being able to put faces to names and places would have made the book even more engrossing. "
