A new history

Malcolm Chase

Published by Manchester University Press

  • This book is unique: no study of the full range of the Chartist movement, based on all the original sources available, has ever been attempted before It is written in an open, accessible style which will appeal to a wide range of readers, specialist and non-specialists alike The bibliography of Chartism already fills two volumes and grows yearly
  • But no other book offers strength in breadth and depth like this one, or a vivid and compelling narrative of the movement which mobilised three millions at its height It strongly intertwines narrative and analysis, with a human touch provided through brief biographies that link into and enhance the overall argument
