When British cities erupted into violence in August 2011, the world once again began to ask why and how such riots begin, and whether there will ever be a solution to civil unrest. This important ebook, a collection of writing by the Guardian's finest contributors, charts the causes and responses to riots and disaffection from Notting Hill in 1958 via Brixton, Toxteth, Detroit and LA, to the present day, with diverse voices including Jesse Jackson, Alistair Cooke and Russell Brand.
A story of stories about civil unrest
A compendium of Guardian articles on civil unrest in the UK and US, the questions about why this happened go largely unanswered, as indeed is necessary, we don't know those answers. More gripping for me is the transition of the journalist and journalism from a distant acceptance of official stories to journalism that tracks and is led by Twitter, in which official stories disappear.
