Christopher Hill's The World Turned Upside Down

Christopher Hill

Christopher Hill turned thinking about the English Civil Wars (1642–51) on its head with The World Turned Upside Down. Instead of focusing on the power struggles of the elite—the battle between the monarchy and would-be republicans—Hill developed ‘history from below,’ investigating the lives of ordinary people, how they saw society, and their political hopes for the future. He uncovered dissent, unrest, and the desire for a fuller, permanent revolution in the social order. The desire for a fairer society was eventually squashed when the social elites were restored to power, but Hill’s book remains arguably the best general history of popular radicalism of the time.
