IN 1971 , the inmates of Attica revolted, took hostages, and forced the authorities into four days of desperate negotiation. The rebels demanded -- and were granted -- the presence of a group of observers to act as unofficial mediators. Tom Wicker, then the Associate Editor of the New York Times , was one of those summoned. This is his account.
Prison riots -- New York (State) -- Attica.
