9780521394550: Currents of Radicalism: Popular Radicalism, Organised Labour and Party Politics in Britain, 1850-1914

'Those who were originally called radicals and afterwards reformers, are called Chartists', declared Thomas Duncombe before Parliament in 1842, a comment which can be adapted for a later period and as a description of this collection of papers: 'those who were originally called Chartists were afterwards called Liberal and Labour activists'. In other words, the central argument of this book is that there was a substantial continuity in popular radicalism throughout the nineteenth and into the twentieth century. The papers stress both the popular elements in Gladstonian Liberalism and the radical liberal elements in the early Labour party. The first part of the book focuses on the continuity of popular attitudes across the commonly-assumed mid-century divide, with studies of significant personalities and movements, as well as a local case study. The second part examines the strong links between Gladstonian Liberalism and the working classes, looking in particular at labour law, taxation, and the Irish crisis. The final part assesses the impact of radical traditions on early Labour politics, in Parliament, the unions, and local government. The same attitudes towards liberty, the rule of law, and local democracy are highlighted throughout, and new questions are therefore posed about the major transitions in the popular politics of the period.

About the Author:

Eugenio F. Biagini is Lecturer in British History at the University of Cambridge.

Review:

This volume of original essays argues that there was a substantial continuity in popular radicalism throughout nineteenth-century Britain. It shows that early nineteenth-century concerns remained prominent in extra-Parliamentary agitations in the mid-Victorian period, that popular pressure played a major role in shaping the Gladstonian Liberal Party, and that radical liberalism was a central element in the early history of the labor party.
In emphasizing common political values rather than class conflict, and continuity rather than contrasting changes in the development of popular politics, it will be of interest both to historians and to readers interested in the background to contemporary politics. -- Book Description
