Dense but not intimidatingly so. Not at all shy about pointing out how the very foundations of American society fed into these events. Though this was written much closer to the widespread unrest of the 60s than to now, its analysis is still extremely relevant in understanding the continuing history of oppression and racial violence in this country.
Sarah Spector
THis is information everyone should know. I reread this for a Newberry seminar and each time I read it I get more out of it. The racism in Chicago's history is truly ugly.
