Chapter Four offers a narrative account of race riots in Lawrence in 1984, and an analysis of how white and Latino Lawrencians viewed the rioting in the context of the city's larger transformations. The riots were the most spectacular and devastating example of the racialized clash in the city, as whites and Latinos attempted to stake their claims with knives, rocks, guns, and Molotov cocktails.
