Bash The Rich

3.72  ·  Rating Details  ·  61 Ratings  ·  6 Reviews
In 1984, "The People" branded Ian Bone 'the most dangerous man in Britain'. They were only too close to the truth. From the inner city riots of 1981 to the miners' strike and beyond, the butler's son and founder of "Class War" was indeed a greater thorn in Margaret Thatcher's side than the useless blatherings of the Official Opposition. "Class War" was the real opposition ...more

I read an abridged version in e-book form, which had a lot of obvious cuts. What remained was more entertaining rather than informative, but was an enjoyable read nonetheless.

While I actually enjoyed reading this book, I couldn't help being left with the distinct impression that Bash The Rich was basically a platform for the author to promote himself. There's not a huge amount of actual detail (I was hoping for lots of insider details about rioting and the battle of the beanfield etc, but the book focusses more on meetings and AGMs than actual rioting!)

Worth a read, but don't expect too many exciting details of rioting and disorder.
laughable crap...
