KIRKUS REVIEW

A probing analysis and inquiry into the nature of violence and violence as nature, backed up by studies of mass media and education (especially its refusal to acknowledge the enemy). Separate articles deal with delinquency, gang warfare, the Hell's Angels, the Gangster as ""tragic hero""; also city planning, racism and riots, poverty and the rebellion of despair, the role of the police and police brutality. Contributors include the Watts Commission on the Riots, Bayard Rustin, Norman Mailer, Kenneth Clark, Jane Jacobs. Not exactly popular fare but important for insights on the outbursts.
