Hillsborough: The Truth Book Launch with Phil Scraton

15 April 1989: 96 men, women and children were killed at Sheffield’s Hillsborough Stadium. Hundreds were injured, many more traumatised. Twenty-seven years later an inquest jury concluded they were killed unlawfully - the police were held primarily responsible, the fans exonerated.

Phil Scraton’s seminal book, Hillsborough: The Truth, including three new chapters written since the inquest and the verdicts, details three decades of struggle by bereaved families and survivors leading to the Hillsborough Independent Panel, the quashing of the original inquest verdicts and new investigations into the police. Compelling and harrowing, it draws on personal interviews, thousands of documents and in-depth analyses of all legal proceedings, revealing how the interests of ordinary people are ignored when those in authority sacrifice truth and deny accountability to protect their reputations.
