For a nation that brought the world Chartism, the Suffragettes, the Tolpuddle Martyrs, and so many other grassroots social movements, Britain rarely celebrates its long, great tradition of people power. This collection brought authors together with historians, sociologists and eyewitnesses to re-imagine key moments of British protest. In association with the People's History Museum and Manchester Metropolitan University.
