Keith Flett on the history of London mobs and London riots

'The one thing we can say about London mobs and London riots is that they have defied over several centuries all attempts by the authorities to make their reappearance impossible and every effort by academics to argue that they are definitively a thing of the past. That seems set to continue to be the case.'
Keith Flett, 'I love the sound of breaking glass: the London crowd, 1760-2010', Spring 2011.
