New. No dust jacket as issued. Brand New! Support Radical Independent Pacific Northwest Booksellers! 16 p. photocopied stapled pamphlet. An essay reprinted from the December 1965 SI Journal. Translated by Ken Knabb (also appearing in his Public Secrets collection). The upheaval that detonated in Watts stunned the nation. The horrific violence and upheaval that defined Watts shattered one illusion. Rioting was no longer an East Coast phenomena, it was now a dilemma of national proportions. Watts would be the standard-bearer for the three hundred riots that would follow it. For every big city had a ghetto and every ghetto had for decades been experiencing the exact same grievances: hatred and mistrust of the police departments, unending poverty, discrimination, despair, hopelessness. Newly translated and reissued July 1992 (in the aftermath of the second Los Angeles riot) by Ken Knabb. Reprinted from Public Secrets (1997). This translation supersedes the version in the Situationist International Anthology (1981). An essay reprinted from the December 1965 SI Journal.
