Race and riots in Thatcher's Britain

Peplow, Simon, author

Through exploration of black British community activism in three geographical case studies, this book argues that the 1980-1 anti-police disturbances should be viewed as 'collective bargaining by riot'. Utilising many original sources, it charts dichotomous attitudes towards public inquiries and discussions of increased political participation
