Abstract

David Starkey’s comments linking ethnicity, poverty and August’s rioting sparked outrage amongst academics who considered his opinion uninformed and offenseive. Paul Benneworth argues that rather than deny him the oxygen of publicity, a content-based rebuttal from other academics is in order, and would prevent the growth of a culture which welcomes comment from only the absolute specialist.
