9780745334097: Rebel Footprints: A Guide to Uncovering London's Radical History

A truly radical response to conservative heritage tours and banal day trips, Rebel Footprints brings to life the history of social movements in England’s capital. David Rosenberg transports readers from well-known landmarks to history-making hidden corners, while telling the story of protest and struggle in London from the early nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century.
            From the suffragettes to the socialists, from the chartists to the trade unionists: Rosenberg invites us to step into the footprints of a diverse cast of dedicated fighters for social justice. Individual chapters highlight particular struggles and their participants, from famous faces to lesser-known luminaries. Rosenberg sets London’s radical campaigners against the backdrop of the city’s multi-faceted development. Self-directed walks pair with narratives that seamlessly blend history, politics, and geography, while specially commissioned maps and illustrations immerse the reader in the story of the city.
            Whether you’re visiting London for the first time, or born and raised there, Rosenberg invites you to see London as you never have before the radical center of the English-speaking world.

About the Author:

David Rosenberg is an educator, writer and tour guide, and author of Battle for the East End. Since 2008 he has led tours of key sites in London’s social and political history. He teaches London’s radical history through City Lit and the Bishopsgate Institute.

Review:

"Informative and well-judged. . . . There is so much that is inspirational in this book, whether the struggles of Jewish tailors in Spitalfields, bakers across the city (who were obliged to work 16-hour shifts in poorly ventilated basements), or the battles against fascism in Cable Street. . . . It would be best to see such places soon, before someone builds a ghastly new office block over them." (Guardian)

"By offering us a guide to our radical past, Rosenberg reminds us of the strong tradition of dissent that has shaped our history and made us who we are." (Billy Bragg)

"You haven't walked the streets of London unless you've understood the secret history of revolt, rebellion and poverty hidden all around you in its bricks and alleyways. Rosenberg takes you there as no other writer has done." (Paul Mason, economics editor, Channel 4 News)

"This brilliant book brings London’s long tradition of radicalism and rebellion to life. Using walks to show how dissent led to democracy, it is a fitting testimonial to the collective struggles of Londoners of every colour and creed. At a time when our capital is increasingly dominated by the interests of the global super rich, this is a timely reminder that many of the rights we now take for granted were won by ordinary working-class people. I for one will be dusting down my walking shoes and taking to the streets to find out more." (Frances O'Grady, General Secretary of the British Trades Union Congress)

“Anyone who wants to know how the individual human spirit can assert itself, whether in the city or the suburbs, could do no better than turn to David Rosenberg’s Rebel Footprints.”
 
“This is not a book for the politically committed alone. On the contrary, it will probably come as more of a revelation to the simply curious, to people with a feel for the neglected past, and to those who enjoy exploring on foot, as Dickens once did.” (Jacqueline Banerjee Times Literary Supplement)
