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

Janet L. Abu-Lughod

  • Janet L. Abu-Lughod has long been considered to be a leading social scientist and this book builds on her groundbreaking work.
  • While there are many studies of individual race riots, this is the first book to compare major twentieth century race riots in the three largest American cities in the context of their unique historical, economic, and political characteristics.
  • This book concludes with a note of caution that many of the conditions which have contributed to racial violence in the past, including economic decline, rising consciousness of inequalities, demobilized soldiers, and competition for jobs, are once again on the horizon.
