An account of the developments in Handsworth, Birmingham , that led eventually to the Handsworth protests of 1985. It covers the role of the police in its attempt to isolate young Blacks in Handsworth and the attempts of leftist political groups to attract these discontented and alienated Black youth into their political orbit. This is a must for students and others interested in the history of the politics of race in the UK.
