I attended Kent State University from 1992 2002 and when I saw this book at a library book sale I was interested in reading this especially since it was by James A Michener an author I knew of but never read This book was very well written and detailed without being filled with personal opinions of the writer This book was originally released in 1971 and filled with great facts and reports from newspaper and television reports to students and faculty members to officials in the city When attending Kent whenever this event was ever brought up which was very few the impression taught to me was some anti Vietnam students were peacefully protesting and got shot from the National Guard However the book explains that rioting from other colleges throughout the state was happening how some rioters were not even campus students and some were even high school studentsThe book talks about the early riots in downtown Kent before May 4 how letters were sent to campus officials demanding things like the ROTC Building to be shut down or it would be burned to attacks planned on The President of the University s house and even flyers being posted all over campus of threats and hate speech The great thing about this book is that it covers as much of the story as it can find from rumors that may or may not have happened to how the university changed curfews on the university yet a different time was used in town At the end of each chapter the writer states some conclusions which is objective by the facts they gathered they cover how both sides of the issues were at fault for miscommunications to just causing trouble Regardless of where you stand on the issue this book is very well written and covers the days leading up to during and after the events Too bad this topic wasn t this thorough in my Kent History classes when I attended there This was a great bargain buy at the book sale
