Format: Paperback
This is a very good popular book about various failed rebellions in Great Britain, ( i.e. British Isles sans Ireland ), starting in Plantagenet times and ending with the General Strike.

There are somestartling omissions: Gordon Riots, Cato Street, Gunpowder Plot, Invergordon, you name it. But for a novice to British history it is a useful compilation, with some equally useful pointers

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Brilliant - and alarming for the way it draws out parallels between the centuries long British State philosophy of "rule by the rich for the rich" and the way things are run today. This is the history that should be taught in schools.
