1st edition. "The Chartist crowd differed from the locality, both in size and in social composition. It is argued that the Metropolitan Police was largely responsible for the containment of the riots of August 1842, and March, May and June 1848, while a lengthy reappraisal of the great meeting of 10 April 1848 rejects its usual dismissal as a 'fiasco'....It is a major contention of the book that industrial and political radicalism was mist closely associated with the economic difficulties currently encountered by a given trade, and that in the Chartist years the principal London industries were confronting massive innovation which resulted in temporary political unity of most London artisans." Pp. xviii/333, 11 illustrations + 1 map. Brown cloth, dustwrapper. VG/VG.
