"This remarkable book offers both a passionate engagement with the concrete processes of political struggle in the English Revolution and a powerful critique of current theoretical models in historiography and literary theory. Intellectually alive from start to finish, Holstun's book captures the polemical energy of the early modern radicals he discusses."--David Norbrook, Merton Chair of Literature, Oxford University"Thoroughly thought-provoking."--History "Ehud's Dagger brings the events of the Civil War period and the ordinary people who made them to life."--Observer "An examination of radical projects which demonstrate the practical contribution of working people to the 1650s."--History Today "Powerfully cogent, often brilliant in its stylistic sophistication, and magisterial in the range of its scholarship ... A work brimming with intelligence."--Chris Fitter, Rutgers University "An intense, thoroughly researched new Marxist study of the English Revolution."--Choice "As an antidote to the distortions of revisionism and as an expression of the continuing vitality of Marxist historiography, Ehud's Dagger is particularly welcome. Three cheers for it!"--Albion "Holstun writes with a meticulous attention to historical detail, evoking the sense of peering into the past through a window in time."--Reviewer's Bookwatch About the Author:
