Through her readings Gunning suggests ways in which the study of both race and gender can be integrated within the framing of racialized culture as well as women's literature.
Despite the book's title, Gunning spends very little time dealing with representations of rape and lynching but focuses instead on the literary reinforcement of, or alternatives to, the stereotypes (black male brute, helpless white female victim, promiscuous black female, white male avenger) that commonly supported white mob violence against African Americans.
Gunning ends her book with a plea for expanding the dialogue between African Americanist and Americanist scholars who, with a few exceptions, she sees as currently inhabiting separate camps.
