Item description for No Cause For Indictment: An Autopsy of Newark by Ronald Porambo, Warren Sloat & Fred Bruning...

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.
"Probably the most moving and instructive book yet written on any of the bloody civil disturbances of the sixties."
—The New Yorker

Reviews - What do customers think about No Cause For Indictment: An Autopsy of Newark?

Gripping, Insightfull, a Masterpice of New Journalism  Dec 27, 2007
Porambo's book, written during the late 1960's and early 1970's, provides a comprehensive account of the social strife of Newark: before, during, and after words. Porambo gives the lions share of his attention to the marginalized black population of the city, offering vivid(at times painful to read) accounts of the squalor and brutality the were forced to endure. While he gives ample attention to the years preceding the riot and to the riot itself, he also dedicates roughly half the book to what happens in the aftermath, leading up to the election of the city's first black mayor and the infamous citywide teachers strike that followed shortly thereafter. He seldom hides his personal views on the matters he describes, often painting his accounts with frustration and rage.
