People's Charter
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Hostile MPs, police spies, mass arrests, picked juries, jails that made prisoners ill and killed them - these were just some of the difficulties faced by working people who campaigned for the vote and some measure of equality before the law in the early Victorian period. Much of the best scholarship on the Chartists has been published in scholarly journals and has therefore been unavailable to the general reader. This volume presents a selection of key essays: Eileen Yeo on Christianity and Chartism; Christopher Godfrey on Chartist prisoners; Paul Pickering on selling Chartist goods and merchandise; Robert Hall on remembering Chartism; Malcolm Chase on Chartism in Middlesborough and Stockton; Stephen Roberts on Chartism in Leicestershire; Philip Howell on Chartist lecturers
