This chapter examines the three interconnected themes associated with food riots in Oxford in the eighteenth century, which include the clash between the food needs and expectations of the local community and the demands made on local supplies, the long tradition of market regulation, and the unusual nature of Oxford society. It analyses how the rioters and the authorities responded to the food crisis, and why the city became prone to riot.
