"[T]he work of a distinguished historian who has written extensively on labor history and the history of Michigan, Sidney Fine's study of the Detroit riot of 1967 is the most ambitious and comprehensive treatment we have of any urban race riot."
"Fine carefully charts the perceptions of blacks themselves, which are fundamental to understanding the events of 1967 and reflected in the growing militancy of civil rights and black nationalist organizations such as the NAACP, the Detroit Urban League, and the Black Christian Nationalist Movement. . . . According to Fine, the riot of 1967 had its genesis in the deep-seated grievances of blacks within the established social order; it also served to heighten those grievances and deepen the polarization of blacks and whites."
