    Belfast was Ireland's most prosperous town in the mid-19th century, so why did its industrial suburbs begin to suffer extended outbreaks of violence? Although historians have identified the disagreements and inequalities which underlay such riots, Doyle probes further, examining individual rioters' motivations, the networks of social relations which drew whole neighbourhoods into conflict and the relations between the state and the city's inhabitants. No jacket.
