Editorial Reviews

'... reasonably priced, well-informed, tightly argued, clearly written and buttressed by a most useful bibliography. It is an outstanding addition to Routledge's Historical Connections series and seems certain to become essential reading for students and teachers alike.' ¿ Labour History Review 'This volume... provides a provocative and clear defence of class analysis as a means of exlpaining social development. ... Remaking should and will have a wide audience among teachers and students. It is well written and argues the case with verve.' ¿ Teaching History 'Savage and Miles manage to pack in an enormous amount of information and analysis and their book should be required reading for anyone interested in the popular politics of the last 150 years' ¿ Socialist History 'A scholarly book that is a model of clarity and quite the best history of English obtainable in one volume.' - The Irish Times
