Shop : Books : The Making of the English Working Class by EP Thompson

This classic and imaginative account of working-lass society in its formative years, 1780 to 1832, revolutionized our understanding of English social history. EP Thompsons shows how the working class took part in its own making and re-creates the whole-life experience of people who suffered loss of status and freedom, who underwent degradation and who yet created a culture and political consciousness of great vitality.
