    Incredibly interesting and contemporaneous coverage of the DC riots following the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. The only thing I found lacking was my own understanding of what life and race relations were like in DC in the months and years leading up to the riots -- the reporting itself, which was adapted from actual coverage of the riots and their aftermath by Washington Post reporters, was top-notch. I was left with a definite desire to read more, so they've clearly done their job.

    A fascinating and compelling collection of the Washington Post's coverage of a truly catastrophic event in D.C. history. When Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated, the city--on the verge of self-governance, but still beholden to the federal government--found itself unprepared to quell the riots that overtook several of D.C.'s main commercial corridors. Ten Blocks From The White House captures the panic of a city on fire, and the embarrassment of a national capital rent by racial violence.
