'Uneasy' Radicals in the Age of the Chartists

by Owen R. Ashton and Paul A. Pickering

This study of six Chartist Leaders portrays movements for democracy and social progress, and explores the role of the uneasy middle classes in campaigns for working-class rights. The comparative analysis provides insights in to the development of dissent, the nature of class and of radicalism in the nineteenth century and an introduction sketches the historical context.

'... the third in an invaluable series of Chartist studies from the Merlin Press'. The New Statesman

'A significant addition to scholarship on the subject ... For those who teach Chartism, at whatever level, this will be a useful and instructive book to add to the reading lists. Each essay can be read on its own, and taken together they would provide a sound basis for a class discussion on the national and local dimensions of Chartism. Moreover, like the other books in the series published by Merlin Press, it is very reasonably priced.' - History.

'... fills a gap in Chartist historiography and provides a valuable opportunity to compare the backgrounds and contributions of six Chartist intellectuals in Britain.' - Labour History.

'You need to read it to fully appreciate the richness of these studies.' North East History

'meticulous research and command of a phenomenal range of both contemporary material and often obscure secondary literature' Labour History Review

THE PEOPLE'S CHARTER THE PEOPLE'S CHARTER
Democratic Agitation in Early Victorian Britain

Edited by Stephen Roberts

Hostile MPs, police spies, mass arrests, picked juries, jails that made prisoners ill and killed them- these were just some of the difficulties faced by working people who campaigned for the vote and some measure of equality before the law in the early Victorian period.
Much of the best scholarship on the Chartists has been published in scholarly journals and has therefore been unavailable to the general reader. This volume presents a selection of key essays.
The volume is introduced by the editor and is accompanied by a chronology. The glossary of historical references, and notes on further reading, make it easily accessible for the general reader.
Chartism is an option for a number of AS/A2 history courses, and teachers will find a selection of copyright free Chartist journalism which can be freely copied for use in schools.
