Format: Hardcover
This excellent biography of Ernest Jones analyses his role in late Chartism, but more particularly examines his invention of his own aristocratic romantic persona. The end result is not unsympathetic, revealing a complex character who certainly made sacrifices in order to serve the working man, though his interpretation of the political scene in the late 1840s to 1860s was backward looking. He tended to see the land as the main form of wealth and, in spite of his links to Marx and Engels, failed to look forward sufficiently to the dominant nature of industrial society. In this however he shared much with Morris and other Socialists of the late nineteenth century.
