Terror Within by Clive Bloom

Book Description

We live in an age of terrorism and like to think that the United Kingdom is a reasonably peaceful place, largely untroubled by the latest atrocity committed by foreign fanatics. Yet we too have a hidden tradition of terrorism that official history has chosen to ignore. Since the 1790s, almost 23,000 British subjects have fought and died on British soil for the ideals of revolutionary republicanism. As well as the three bloody civil wars in Ireland, and the bombing campaigns by the IRA in English cities, there have been two Welsh uprisings, one Lowland Scottish civil war, one crofters' rebellion, one uprising in Derbyshire and another in Kent. There have also been five attempts to assassinate the entire cabinet and seize London, numerous attempts to murder the royal family and an almost continuous history of terrorism from the Fenians of the 1860s to the Tartan Army of the 1970s. Clive Bloom's new book tells for the first time the full story of attempts to set up a British republic. Colourful and revealing, it throws light on the links between English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh republicanism and shows how the anti-terror state was born not in 2001 but in the 1790s.

Victoria's Madmen is the story of those who were outcasts by temperament and choice; the non-conformists of the Victorian Age. Clive Bloom's readable account of the dark underbelly of Victoria's Britain captures the unrest bubbling under the surface of strait-laced Victorian society.

Riot City by Clive Bloom Riot City, Paperback (July 2012)

This follow up to Violent London deals in detail with the story behind the 2010 and 2011 riots both from the perspective of the protesters, rioters and from the point of view of the police and government. Bloom uses reportage, parliamentary, police and security briefings, as well as the voices and theory of modern protest, to tell the story.
