In July 1863 New York City experienced widespread rioting unparalleled in the history of the nation. Here for the first time is a scholarly analysis of the Draft Riots, dealing with motives and with the reasons for the recurring civil disorders in nineteenth-century New York: the appalling living conditions, the corruption of the civic government, and the geographical and economic factors that led to the social upheaval.

After I had taken a picture and started cataloging this book, I realized that it was an ex-library book. I almost moved on but it is in nice condition for an ex-lib and I decided to put it in my bargain under $10 category.
