This classic work lays out the main outlines and most important turning points of English history – from the point of view of the ordinary people – in a clear and jargon-free style. Fascinating for the general reader and the historian alike, A People’s History of England – which has been continuously in print for more than fifty years – is the indispensable work on the subject.

“As Morton himself states, ‘In spite of its title, this book is not so much a History of England as an essay in historical interpretation’… Morton implements historical materialism in a very readable way that brings its theoretical power to bare on aspects of British history beyond its usual concerns. Excellent introduction and overview to both British history and historical materialism.” – John Sidwell
