More than that, Rebellion in Newark seeks to clarify why America is the only affluent Western society where insurrection is a regular happening in its major cities.White Americans trying to understand without prejudice the violent events of the last four summers will find two themes developed here.

The first is that riots are much more than anti-social behavior. They must be viewed both as a new stage in the development of the Negro protest against racism and as a logical outgrowth of the whole society to support racial equality. The second theme is that Americans have to turn their attention from the lawbreaking violence of the rioters to the original and greater violence of racism which is supported indirectly by the white community as a whole.

Thirty years after the New Deal and five years after the rediscovery of poverty, the question concerned Americans must ask is whether this country is capable, here and now, of dealing with the social problems being violently protested in the slums.
