Description: First Edition. This book is a very detailed and very well researched history of race relations in Dallas. The book was written to shed light on the state of race relations in the city during the middle to late portions of the twentieth century. The author still lives here in the Dallas area and currently publishes a column for the Observer. The books condition is F with only the DJ showing minor chips and bumps to the foot at the spine. Internally, the front endpaper does have a personal inscription from one individual to another (neither are the author). Otherwise this is an amazing piece of Dallas and even Texas history and well worth it to any serious collector of Dallas/Texas history. . Published by Citadel Press 1987 Fine Condition.

Synopsis: The first no-holds-barred, straight-on, uncensored look at Dallas politics ever to come from within the city itself, seeking to answer the question: Why was Dallas spared the agony of racial turmoil in the 60s--and what effect is that having now?
