Not because of the identity of the victim - whose name was not Kennedy, King, or Malcolm - but because of the circumstances. Kitty Genovese was a 28-year-old middle-class woman from Kew Gardens, Queens, whose murder was distinguished by the presence of thirty-eight witnesses, not one of whom did a thing to stop the series of attacks that would claim her life." "First published over thirty years ago, Thirty-Eight Witnesses remains an important social document. As related by one of the best-known and most controversial newspaper professionals in the country, it is part memoir, part investigative journalism, and part public service. In a new introduction, A.M. Rosenthal examines why the murder of Kitty Genovese still has the power to shock an otherwise jaded world."--Jacket." ;
