In a comparative study drawing on material from the United States and Britain, David Waddington examines how various types of industrial, political, urban and sectarian disorder occur. Contemporary Issues in Public Disorder critically appraises the theoretical approaches to understanding public disorder and contributes to the ongoing debates on police methods, police accountability and the controversial role of the media.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Waddington has largely succeeded in producing an accessible introduction to these issues. In many respects it is currently the best critical analysis of public disorder produced by a British social scientist."
-"Times Higher Education Supplement
"Public order in a modern society is fragile--and is vulnerable to ill-considered government policies. In "Contemporary Issues in Public Disorder Waddington constructs a powerful indictment of the callous incompetence of the Thatcher administrations in the field of law and order. This book is a major contribution to the literature of civil disorder."
-John Benyon, University of Leicester
