The Year of Dangerous Days

Riots, Refugees, and Cocaine in Miami 1980

Nicholas Griffin

Explore the rise and fall of Miami, one of America's most popular vacation destinations, in 1980. Plagued by a drug epidemic, a bulging refugee crisis, and police brutality, this forgotten year was a vital moment in American history. Follow iconic figures such as Jimmy Carter, Fidel Castro, and Janet Reno, as well as intertwining personal stories of people like reporter Edna Buchanan, homicide detective Captain Marshall Frank, and charismatic politician Mayor Maurice Ferre. Discover how they cross paths as Miami explodes in one of the worst race riots in history, and how they struggled to persevere, creating a new Miami that was born from corruption and drug money. A highly timely and deeply researched account, this book is a must-read for anyone interested in understanding America's most iconic cities.
