5.0 out of 5 stars

on 30 April 2010
Dorothy Thompson is an exemplary historian. She has devoted a lifetime to the study of Chartism and the working class radicalism of the first half of the nineteenth century. She is a committed socialist but that informs her objectivity as a historian rather than diminishing it. This work is perhaps more a collection of essays than a thorough history of Chartism, but that is not a criticism. Each chapter reflects the most impressive scholarship, but I was particularly taken by the middle section: Who were the Chartists? Her answers are provocative and stimulating: almost every paragraph could be the stimulus for a PhD or a monograph. Two questions - why no other Amazon reviews and why no reprint?
