I'll give it a go. I greatly enjoyed Barbara Ehrenreich's "Dancing in the Streets," which also speaks to this.

As for the good crowd/bad crowd thing re England. Why can't it be both? We're all grownups. We need to deal with gray; not just black and white. If revolutions attract opportunists, why not riots?

Georges Rudé's The Crowd in History made a huge impression on me when I was a student - the antidote to Gustav LeBon's reactionary The Crowd, whose ideas in bastardized form are common coin in the mass media - but Rudé's works may no longer be in print.
