Here, as experienced by men and women who lived through them, are not only the familiar, chilling eruptionsHarpers Ferry; the Civil War draft riot in New York; Homestead; Centralia; the Detroit ghetto; the assassinations of Lincoln, Malcolm X, and Robert Kennedybut also less commonly remembered episodes, such as the New York slave riots of 1712, the doctors riot of 1788, vigilante terror in Montana, the anti-Chinese riot in Los Angeles in 1871, and the White League coup détat of 1874 in New Orleans.
In his extensive introduction, Richard Hofstadter shows how, in the face of the record, Americans have had an extraordinary ability to persuade themselves that they are among the best-behaved and the best-regulated of peoples. With more than one hundred entries, the editors have documented and put into perspective the thread of violence in American history whose rediscoveryas Hofstadter suggestswill undoubtedly be one of the most important intellectual legacies of the 1960s. The book clearly demonstrates, even as the reader comes to grips with long-eluded truths, that Americas consistent history of violence has not yet breached beyond hope of restoration our long record of basic political stability, that most social reforms in the United States have been brought about without violence.
