Race, Space, and Riots in Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles

Janet L. Abu-Lughod

Race, Space, and Riots in Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles weaves together historical narratives of major riots with the changing contexts in which they have occurred to show how urban space, politics, and economic conditions--not simply an abstract "race conflict"--all structure the form and virulence of urban rebellions. Comparing six major race riots that occurred in the three largest American metropolitan centers--Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles--Abu-Lughod draws upon archival research, primary and secondary sources, and field work to reconstruct events--especially for the 1964 Harlem riot and Chicago's 1968 riots where no single study currently exists.
