Book reveals 'lies' about deadly Attica prison riot in US

Forty-five years after inmates revolted at the US prison Attica, a historian has begun to unravel what she calls the tangled web of official lies about the ruthless suppression of the bloody uprising. Heather Ann Thompson of the University of Michigan has gathered the results of 13 years of research into “Blood in the Water,” a 720-page book on the 1971 incident in the upstate New York facility. Midway between Lake Erie and Lake Ontario in the western corner of New York state, the Attica prison held a majority of African American and Puerto Rican prisoners, monitored by guards who were virtually all white.
