9780141025476: The English Rebel

The English have a rich and glorious history of making trouble for themselves. One hundred and forty years before the French Revolution, the English executed their king and instituted a radical revolutionary government. In 1215, more than 570 years before the United States ratified its Bill of Rights, England's barons forced King John to accept the Magna Carta. In 1926 over 1.5 million strikers brought the nation to its knees. From the Peasants' Revolt to the suffragettes, from Oliver Cromwell to Arthur Scargill, this ground-breaking and hugely enjoyable book describes a rich and continuous tradition of resistance, rebellion and radicalism, of violent and charismatic individuals with axes to grind, and of social eruptions and political earthquakes that have shaped England's whole culture and character.

Review:

A superb losers' history of England [told] with narrative verve and delicious detail Ferdinand Mount An unfailingly lucid, immensely readable, and above-all clear-eyed account of an indomitable strand in our national story David Kynaston An exciting, accessible story. Horspool uncovers the hearty, dangerous energy of British politics. We are a nation of rebels, whose history has been shaped by stirrers of every kind Diane Purkiss Highly impressive. Could almost be a one-volume guide to English history. -- Noel Malcolm Sunday Telegraph Full of wit and scholarship -- Peter Ackroyd The Times
