Contents

'People were burying their relatives. Homes and businesses smouldered. The nation grabbed blindly for explanations for the riots that had ripped through England. Where were the psychologists?
They were there, if you looked, and we did. The Research Digest blog collected links to comment and analysis, and the Society's website encouraged comment. Yet much of
it seemed almost 'meta' or 'anti' science: explanation about explanation, or views on what the riots weren't and what we shouldn't do, rather than what they were and what we should.

The riots cried out for the discipline: for once there genuinely seemed to be multiple, interacting causes. Yet we seemed quiet, perhaps wary that honest uncertainty would appear weak or that the media were in no mood to listen.

This month, an extended 'Letters' section presents comment on the riots. Providing a forum for discussion across the discipline is central to The Psychologist, and we hope to offer new opportunities (in print and online) in future. Your views, as always, are welcome.'
Dr Jon Sutton,  Editor
