Abstract
Description
This report selectively analyzed four different civil disturbances that occurred in the summer of 1969. The cities involved, three in Midwest and one in the south central section of the United States, are all major metropolitan centers with a substantial nonwhite population. Some of these cities have experienced civil disorders in their recent past, others have not. However, no systematic attempt is made to relate past events with those under examination in this analysis. Each disturbance is primarily analyzed as a separate case study of a contemporary incident, although some comparisons are made between them.
