Fight Back! A Reader on the Winter of Protest

Available now as a free e-book (see below).

The first book to be produced by an ‘editorial kettle’ – all seven of its editors are under 30 and have been kettled by the police – Fight Back! features 350 pages of reports, analysis, images, reflections and overviews on the UK’s winter of protests by 43 authors [ed: including an article originally published on Critical Legal Thinking by Rory Rowan]. It asks: Is this the start of a successful movement against fees and cuts?

From a 15-year-old UK Uncut flash-mob activist to a rebel Lib Dem peer – Fight Back! captures both the spirit and arguments of Britain’s winter revolt, bringing together the best reportage and analysis of an extraordinary political moment.
