The British Labor Party politician who represents Tottenham, the place where the riots of August 2011 began, examines the riots and the way forward "Out of the ashes, what kind of country do we want to build?"
David Lammy MP predicted the riots of 2011 a year before they took place. Following the violence he spoke passionately for his constituents. Now he analyzes the causes of the disturbances and their implications for the future. He draws on his experience of growing up in Tottenham, the area he now represents and the place where the riots began. He explores the human stories behind the headlines. Above all, he seeks to explain why the breakdown of law and order was so swift and so widespread, and offers a way forward for Britain that is both practical and inspirational.
