Abstract

Selected responses to the 1992 Los Angeles civil unrest are critically evaluated in terms of their ability to address the root causes of the disturbances. The authors conclude that the grassroots initiatives are far more likely to effectuate positive change in the lives of the disadvantaged and to rebuild the communities of south central Los Angeles and other affected areas than the initiatives launched by the public and the private sectors.
