Bruce Porter and Marvin Dunn's 1984 examination of one of the most brutal events in American history should be required reading for anyone who cares about the fragile state of the fabric that is our society, woven of many fibers, strong, yes but easily unraveled. The book is objective in tone and very thorough in detail. In many ways, the Miami riot of 1980 foreshadowed the LA Riots. Dunn and Porter also fault the Miami Police for their handling of the riots and describe several scenarios by which they could have put a stop to the violence.

The 1980 Miami riots were race riots that occurred in Miami, Florida, starting in earnest on May 18, 1980, following the acquittal of four Dade County Public Safety Department officers in the death of Arthur McDuffie (December 3, 1946 – December 21, 1979).

Book by Porter, Bruce, Dunn, Marvin
heart of sky
Bruce Porter and Marvin Dunn's 1984 examination of one of the most brutal events in American history should be required reading for anyone who cares about the fragile state of the fabric that is our society, woven of many fibers, strong, yes but easily unraveled. The book is objective in tone and very thorough in detail. The graphic accounts of the wanton murders of innocent motorists and the senseless destruction of a city are disturbing.
I recommend this volume to anyone who cares about the state of American society then and now.
Crazy
As a youth in South Florida, I recall the Miami riots of 1980 as a time of excitement and menace. Although far removed from the violence, I remember the concerned voices on the radio and the firey images on television. Marvin Dunn, a sociologist and community leader, places the riot in historical perspective. He profiles the black communities of Overtown and Liberty City, the culture of the Miami Police Department and the incident that touched off the rioting. Dunn convincingly explains that the rioters came from a cross section of the black community, from middle-class professionals to the inner-city poor, and that the violence was not goal-driven, like the urban uprisings of the 1960s. The riots represented pure rage springing from a host of long-held grievences. In many ways, the Miami riot of 1980 foreshadowed the LA Riots. Dunn and Porter also fault the Miami Police for their handling of the riots and describe several scenarios by which they could have put a stop to the violence. I recommend this book to any and all who are interested in race relations and/or the relationship between urban law enforcement and the black community.
Reighbyra
I was teaching race relations classes for the Navy when this incident occurred. I remember it well, and how the blame was largely placed on the victims. This book did a lot to reveal the sordid history of race relations and abuse in the Miami area. Much of it was simply appalling. I found this book to be fair and revealed the shortcomings on all sides. It should be studied to learn what can happen with the power structure ignores obvious and blatant abuse and discrimination. There are parallels to today.
