Rising from the Ashes
Ris­ing from the Ashes

Paula Yoo’s Ris­ing from the Ash­es: Los Ange­les, 1992. Edward Jae Song Lee, Latasha Har­lins, Rod­ney King, and a City on Fire. “Using scores of inter­views, direct quotes, news reports, and archival pho­tographs to sculpt this thor­ough­ly researched his­to­ry, Yoo vivid­ly and mov­ing­ly con­veys the broad­er his­tor­i­cal con­text and the many lives that were affect­ed, shed­ding light on sys­temic chal­lenges that con­tin­ue today. A nuanced and nec­es­sary nar­ra­tive.” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review)
