ABSTRACT
Elaborates on the reasons why another conflagration could erupt at any time in south central Los Angeles. Futility of federal aid: the `urban aid' bill that emerged from Congress included at best $4 billion in urban aid, out of a $27 billion measure; Modest scale of local help, and the pitfalls of delivering it: Los Angeles County lost 280,000 jobs last year; Snarls in criminal justice: report from a post-riot commission; The boiling pot: truce is breaking down.
