about

The Agreements of the People were a series of written constitutions proposed variously by Levellers, soldiers and citizens for the settlement of the nation at the height of the English Revolution. The essays in this book explore the various Agreements in the context of the constitutional crisis that engulfed England in the late 1640s and 1650s.

Editorial Reviews

Won Book of the Week at the University of Buckingham (7th August 2013)

"The [historiographical] landscape is altered in sometimes startling, but always refreshing, ways and, for those interested in the English revolution, the development of constitutional thought and the sources and character of early modern radicalism, this is an indispensable text." - J.C. Davis, Parliamentary History
