Thompson's work combines passion and intellect, the gifts of the poet, the narrator and the analyst (Eric Hobsbawm Independent)

A dazzling vindication of the lives and aspirations of the then - and now once again - neglected culture of working-class England (Martin Kettle Observer)

Superbly readable . . . a moving account of the culture of the self-taught in an age of social and intellectual deprivation (Asa Briggs Financial Times)

An event not merely in the writing of English history but in the politics of our century (Michael Foot Times Literary Supplement)

The greatest of our socialist historians (Terry Eagleton New Statesman)
