Reviews

"Excellent, lively, and learned... An engaging and unsettling study of the city." - The Bloomsbury Review "Mumford explores the devastating effect of the riots and how the city police, state police, and National Guard escalated the violence." The Star-Ledger (New Jersey) "Mumford's history of race relations in Newark is full of arresting insight, fascinating detail, and memorable writing. With interdisciplinary creativity, he offers an important contribution to the understanding of modern America." Randall Kennedy, Harvard University
