From the Back Cover
Brian Manning is one of the foremost historians of the English Revolution. He defends an explicitly Marxist approach to history.
In his latest book, he examines the role of the most radical elements within the English Revolution, which he controversially calls the 'far left'. He demonstrates that this far left foreshadowed the development of working class consciousness and revolutionary socialist politics.
This fascinating volume is essential reading for all those who wish to find out about the extraordinary political developments in this most exciting period in English history.
'This is a book for our time. The struggle for democracy, peace and social justice still goes on and we have much to learn from the English Revolution.' Tony Benn
