1839: The Chartist Insurrection
Unkant Publishers, Mar 31, 2012 - History - 268 pages
A history of the Chartist insurrection of 1839, based on original sources, and especially the Chartist and radical press of the time. With its meticulous attention to detailed sources, its comprehensive scope and its exacting research, this book doesn't just address the neglect of this important episode in Labour movement history-more importantly it challenges us to think again about the revolutionary potential of the British Labour movement. John McDonnell MP, Foreword Appendices include Julian Harney's 'The Tremendous Uprising' and Edward Aveling's memoir, 'George Julian Harney: A Straggler of 1848'.
