This is an account of the Gordon Riots, one of the most violent outbreaks of popular protest in British history. In 1780, Lord George Gordon MP led 50,000 people to present a petition calling for the repeal of the 1778 Roman Catholic Relief Act. The demonstration turned into a riot.
Christopher Hibbert is, in the words of The Times, perhaps the most gifted popular historian we have. His long list of publications includes The Making of Charles Dickens, London, the Biography of a City, The Virgin Queen, The Road to Tyburn and the Roots of Evil (also in Sutton History Classics)
