Not Abstract Words but Tools of Analysis
This chapter highlights the specific contrasting characteristics of Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles that explain why twentieth-century race riots in each city have been so different. It draws on the author’s book, Race, Space, and Riots in Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles. It considers factors such as city residents, political structures and culture, and the roles played by the local police in triggering and exacerbating riots and the degree to which their behavior is subject to political control. It shows that people, place, and politics are differently configured in the three cities that, to some extent, has resulted in different histories of racial violence.
