The Casualties of Peterloo
The Casualties of Peterloo
by Professor Michael Bush
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Specialist literature, 2 Mar. 2011
I was looking for an overview about the Peterloo events. This book does offer some insight. However, the book mainly aims to put together a comprehensive list of casualties of the Peterloo massacre. It contains discussions of existing lists and their methodological / statistical shortcomings. The book makes interesting methodological reading and is essentially an academic text. Knowing this, I would not have bought it. (I must admit though that the title of the publication should have led me to this conclusion before buying the volume.)

2.0 out of 5 stars old book, 1 Mar. 2011
The book was published in 2001. Manchester has changed substantially since. Some buildings have disappeared (Mathematics Building Oxford Road / Manchester University) and others are not yet mentioned (Beetham Tower etc). In serious need of updating.
