Description:

"Probably the most moving and instructive book yet written on any of the bloody civil disturbances of the sixties."- The New Yorker The definitive account of the buildup, chaos, and aftermath of one of the worst urban riots in US history: the 1967 Newark riots. Being re-issued on the fortieth anniversary of the devastating event, No Cause For Indictment is a must-read to understand issues still facing urban America: poverty, political corruption, and racism. Forty years ago, Newark's oppressed black majority erupted in revolt and were ruthlessly put down by the police and National Guard units. When other reporters were too afraid, Ronald Porambo walked the streets of Newark and took four years to research and write the whole story. Its publication resulted in two attempts on his life. This edition includes an introduction from the editor of the original manuscript about the tumult surrounding the book's publication, and an afterword interviewing the author about the struggles he faced after publication. Ronald Porambo lived in Newark and was a journalist at several New York City-area newspapers, including the Elizabeth Daily Journal in New Jersey. Warren Sloat helped edit the final manuscript of No Cause For Indictment. He is the author of A Battle for the Soul of New York and 1929. He lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Fred Bruning was a reporter for Newsweek and Newsday. He lives in Huntington, New York.
