Very decent book looking, essentially, at protest movements based or operating in London. Some of the events are more well-known than others, although the streets upwards viewpoint, rather than a view looking down from the point of view of the power structure, will be unfamiliar to most. Occasionally, an edit or two may have helped things appear more objective, and inevitably, the more recent history focuses on situations which are ongoing, which raises the question of how and when to write history. But if the prognosis for the capital doesn’t come out especially strong and happy looking, this in itself is a refreshing departure from norms. A vital book, gloriously dry and very persuasive.
