Published to mark the thirtieth anniversary of the infamous uprisings that shook Liverpool in 1981, this fascinating volume recounts the history of what became known nationally as the Toxteth Riots. Drawing together memories of and responses to the riots by some of the key protagonists, "Liverpool"" '81" explores the reasons why they took place as well as what their consequences and legacies have been. Additional chapters focus on what has become of the people and places most directly affected by the riots--black and minority communities, as well as inner city residents in Liverpool and beyond--and how these communities have reacted and moved on over the past thirty years.
