Popular Disturbances in England 1700-1870, Paperback

Popular Disturbances in England 1700-1870 Paperback

Part of the Themes in British Social History series


John Stevenson has revised and expanded his standard but long-unobtainable work on Popular Protest and Public Order 1700-1870 in two self-sufficient volumes.

The first (1700-1832) appeared in 1992; this is its keenly-awaited sequel.

The greater part of it is entirely new, and brings the analysis of popular disturbance -- and its political and economic roots -- through to modern times.

Tracing the theme through from the Chartists of the late 1830s to the British Union of Fascists in the late 1930s, it highlights both the changing agendas and the unchanging tensions that underlie social disorder.
