Race Riot

Chicago in the Red Summer of 1919

"This book has more lives than a cat because its feet are firmly planted on the bedrock issues of race and class, its analysis goes to the quick of urban-industrial life in the early twentieth century, and its vivid narrative captures the tumultuous riot without ever losing scholarly balance. A quarter century after it was first published, it has still not been excelled."--Alan Dawley, author of Struggles for Justice: Social Responsibility and the Liberal State

"One cannot fully understand the Chicago riot of 1919 or, indeed, the post-World War I racial strife without reading this important work."--John Hope Franklin, coeditor, Black Leaders of the Twentieth Century
