| WILLIAM MORRIS: ROMANTIC TO REVOLUTIONARY |
With a new foreword by Sheila Rowbotham
'Thompson's biography gives us the artist and the political fighter. Of the many books I have read on William Morris and his times, this is the one I consider to be the most profound on the creative thinking of this loveable committed activist. In 1976, as Thompson finally put William Morris: Romantic to Revolutionary 'to bed', he proferred it for people to use 'as a quarry'. Quarry away readers, you will find deep historical observation and many thoughts for our present days.'
From the foreword
'Two impressive figures, William Morris as subject and E.P. Thompson as author, are conjoined in this immense historical study ...' New York Times Book Review
