KIRKUS REVIEW

Two professors in a Detroit university with the aid of student investigators round up the evidence on the race riots, the whys and hows. They analyze the thousands of irritants, frayed nerves, the side stepping of mayor and police, the character of the participants -- hoodlums, black and white, the rumors of what happened rather than authenticated facts. Then they investigate the facts behind the Red Cross blood donor discrimination, the employment problems, the comparative factors in the Harlem riot and the Los Angeles zoot suit war. Social document, based on case records; interesting reading.
