Product Description

Details

'Riot!' masterfully recreates the sequence of events that led to the Bristol Bridge Massacre in 1793 and illuminates a darker moment in Bristol's history. Compellingly written and meticulously researched, 'Riot!' is essential reading for anyone interested in local history or politics.

The 1793 Bristol Bridge Massacre was one of the major civil disturbances of eighteenth century England and in many ways marked the end of Bristol's Golden Era and the beginning of its slow decline in fortunes. Because there was no official inquiry into the massacre, Manson's research represents a vital body of work about this 'forgotten' piece if Bristol history.The book features an introduction by Steve Poole, Associate Professor of Social and Cultural History at the University of the West of England. 'Riot!' was originally published in 1997 by Past & Present Press and has been out of print for more than 10 years.

The new edition of this important history book is published by Bristol Books CiC.
