Title Urban Rage : The Revolt of the Excluded
Author Dikec, Mustafa
Date 2017
English abstract
In the past few decades, urban riots have erupted in democracies across the world. While high profile politicians often react by condemning protestors' actions and passing crackdown measures, this book shows how these revolts are in fact rooted in exclusions and genuine grievances which our democracies are failing to address. It argues that global revolts may be sparked by a particular police or government action but nonetheless are expressions of much longer and deep seated rage accumulated through hardship and injustices that have become routine. The book examines urban revolts in the United States, United Kingdom, France, Sweden, Greece, and Turkey.
