The Common People: A History from the Norman Conquest to the Present

Regular price €4,00

Tax included.

An underestimated book, its subject matter is clearly set out both by topic and chronology. One feels the author has a deep knowledge of his subject yet it is not hard going and the prose flows. There is a feeling both of refection on the past and of continuity with the present, albeit it having been published nearly fifty years ago. It is not doctrinaire yet it's obvious where the author's sympathies lie, a worthy successor and companion to EP Thompson's 'The Making of the English Working Class'.
