It gives a comprehensive view of the events. A series of subjective points of view that collated can bring an almost objective overview of the events.

This book is a great documentary.It draws a neat picture of what it was to be a part of the riot, in both perspectives.Its just not the issue of black & white people,she indulges koreans ,mexicans etc.twilight is the appropriate book to explain the los angeles riots.
