FROM THE PUBLISHER - Racial violence in the united states No topic has been discussed in recent years at greater length or with more vigor than urban violence, most of which is seen in a context of racial confrontation. Events of the past six years have left behind over one hundred dead, thousands injured and arrested, property damage beyond toll, and a population schizophrenically outraged and conscience stricken. Researchers-scholarly, journalistic and governmental-have offered explanations which have competed with the interpretations of right and left and black and white extremists. While many Americans have reacted to the violence of recent years as if it were a new phenomenon, it is not, and a special merit of Racial Violence in the United States is that it places current events into historical perspective. It includes accounts of racial violence involving our principal racial minority from different periods in American history, showing these disturbing events in their historical context as well as providing suggestive analyses of their social, psychological, and political causes and implications. This book includes reports and studies of racial violence from the slave insurrections of the seventeenth century to contemporary urban disturbances. It is, however, more than a descriptive record, and its contents not only demonstrate the historical nature of the problem but also provide scholars and policy makers with a review of the major theoretical points of view. It defines patterns in past and present disturbances, isolates empirical generalizations, and samples the substantial body of literature that has attempted to explain this ultimate form of social conflict. There are selections on the characteristics of rioters, on the ecology of riots, and on the role of law in urban violence, as well as theoretical interpretations developed by psychologists, sociologists, political scientists, and other observers. These materials, taken from a variety of scattered and frequently fugitive sources, will help interested readers to understand better the new violence that has accompanied the recent attempts of black Americans to gain for themselves the full equality which has long been promised but never delivered.
