By H. N. Brailsford
Edited by Christopher Hill

To our generation fell the good fortune of re-discovering the Levellers. To the classical liberal historians they meant rather less than nothing. This neglect is puzzling. At the crisis of the English Revolution it was the Levellers and not from its commanders that the victorious New Model army derived its political ideas and its democratic drive.

by Tony Benn

The Levellers continue to inspire political debate and public interest. Thousands of people travel to Burford, attracted by their story with its ideas of democracy and common ownership. Tony Benn's and Frieder Otto Wolf's sparkling speeches to the annual Leveller's Day celebrations at Burford, separated by more than twenty years, give ample testimony to the strength of this tradition.

Socialist Democracy and
the Great English Revolution

by Eduard Bernstein

Bernstein lives in the socialist folk-memory as the founder of "revisionism": admirers see him as a great innovator, while detractors still describe him as the "pope" of moderation. In reality, he had a radical mind, which is very well displayed in this still vibrant history of socialist and democratic thought in the English Revolution.

By Christopher Hampton

This major anthology spans 500 years of radical protest from the Peasants’ Revolt to the First World War. Provides an alternative political and social history of England.

This is history as creative defiance, as communal action, involving the intellectual and imaginative witnesses of those among the privileged poets, writers, and thinkers who have had the strength and courage to make themselves passionate spokesmen for the dispossessed.
