Grover, Christopher (2011) Social Protest in 2011: Material and Cultural Aspects of Economic Inequalities. Sociological Research Online, 16 (4). ISSN 1360-7804Full text not available from this repository.
The wave of social protest that swept across England in August 2011 has predominantly been explained by political elites through appeals to various approaches that have in common individualistic frameworks of reference. Issues related to the material condition of society are either little analysed or, among the political elite, ruled out as an explanation of the protests. However, it is clear from both the historical literature on social protest and the contemporary literature on relationships between crime and inequality that explanations ignoring inequalities, particularly economic inequalities, are problematic.
