Fascinating qualitative research on protest/riots in England following the death of Mark Duggan. The depth of interviews is rich, and the style is remarkable for how accessible it is. Some might critique the tone as 'too journalistic', but I don't think that takes away from its academic rigor, reliability, or validity. Interesting reading for anyone, but particularly interesting for qualitative researchers.

If you didn't read the individual essays published in the Guardian in 2012, absolutely read this. It brings together the different aspects researched by the Guardian and LSE about what caused the 2011 London/ UK riots. The study really examines the difference between the messages circulated by politicians about the inherent criminality of the rioters and the reality of systematic failures that actually motivated people to violence. Incredibly moving and infuriating.
