"A brilliant analysis of the right to protest by one of the world's leading experts. Paul Harris's book is a powerful reminder that freedom and democracy only thrive when this right is protected by law. Historically rich and full of legal ammunition, it made me want to take to the streets as well as the courts."

- Baroness Helena Kennedy QC

"Essential reading for students of constitutional and administrative law, for people interested in human rights, and for people anywhere in the world engaged in protest ... a truly rich and wonderful historical and legal account"

- Denning Law Review

The first ever world wide history of street demonstrations. A popular but carefully researched history book, starting with the first deliberately peaceful demonstrations in London in 1795, and describing how the idea spread round the world.

Covers Peterloo, the Chartists, the Suffragettes, Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Greenpeace, the Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo, Tian An Men Square and many more. Explains why some succeeded and others failed. If you have ever been on a demonstration or have any interest in demonstrations this book is a must.
