Pre-Marx, pre-Industrialism, pre-everything,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Making of the English Working Class (Penguin History) (Paperback)
Thompson goes far back into British history to chart the emergence of the working classes, and indeed the middle and upper classes, before the great upheavals of the 19th century. A book that gives the history of the developments which led to industrialism and socialist thought.
