Part of the series of "Public Affairs Pamphlets," this title discusses the Detroit Race Riots of 1943 and how to avoid similar disturbances - forty-four people died in the riot, hundreds were injured, and hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of property damage occurred. One of the most interesting features of the pamphlet is a pictorial chart entitled "How to Lessen racial tension." Better housing, learning democratic behavior in schools, and "efficient policing of Negro districts" are all represented in the chart.
