The Making of the English Working Class (Penguin Modern Classics)

The Making of the English Working Class (Penguin Modern Classics) by E. P. Thompson
English | November 26, 2013 | ISBN: 0141976950 | EPUB | 928 pages | 3 MB

Fifty years since first publication, E. P. Thompson's revolutionary account of working-class culture and ideals is published in Penguin Modern Classics, with a new introduction by historian Michael Kenny

This classic and imaginative account of working-class society in its formative years, 1780 to 1832, revolutionized our understanding of English social history. E. P. Thompson 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 cultured and political consciousness of great vitality.
