Product Description

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Short masterpiece 22 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Brian Manning's 'The Far Left in the English Revolution' completes the 5 books Manning wrote analysing the English revolution.

It's excellent, short and punchy and has one of the clearest (and brief) explanations of fundamental Marxist concepts, including exploitation, surplus labour, class and the mode of production.

This is followed by excellent analysis of Thompson's Leveller revolt of 1649 and Venner's Fifth Monarchist revolt of 1657 and where they sit with the radical ideas and movements of the era generally.
