From dust jacket: Anthony Platt has produced the definitive study of riot commission politics, based on massive research and cool, precise calculations. Motivated by the recent discovery of the suppressed Harlem Commission Report of 1935, Platt has assembled official documents of great political and historical importance. The collection includes selections from the final reports of riot commissions from 1917 to 1970 as well as critical essays by distinguished persons not connected with commissions.
