Histories of a Radical Book: E. P. Thompson and The Making of the English Working Class

November 2020

For better or worse, E.P. Thompson’s monumental book The Making of the English Working Class has played an essential role in shaping the intellectual lives of generations of readers since its original publication in 1963. This collected volume explores the complex impact of Thompson’s book, both as an intellectual project and material object, relating it to the social and cultural history of the book form itself—an enduring artifact of English history.

The cover of Histories of a Radical Book features a dark gray silhouette of a book.
