    schema:description "Since 2000, London has seen unprecedented levels of unrest. Its streets have become the battleground for a host of new demands and new ideological standpoints; its occupants, protesters and authority alike, have had to invent new tactics to cope with the pressure of these demands. Riot City deals in detail with the story behind the capital's unrest from the perspective of protesters, police and government. Using a range of sources, from security briefings to reportage, Clive Bloom provides a full historical analysis of the student protests to the August riots. In doing so, he draws parallels between these shocking events and reveals, more disturbingly, how security forces failed to act upon their early predictions of the intensified violence of 2011."@en ;
