This book is a wide-ranging survey of the rise of mass movements for democracy and workers' rights in northern England. It is a provocative narrative of the closing down of public space and dispossession from place. The book offers historical parallels for contemporary debates about protests in public space and democracy and anti-globalisation movements. In response to fears of revolution from 1789 to 1848, the British government and local authorities prohibited mass working-class political meetings and societies. Protesters faced the privatisation of public space. The 'Peterloo Massacre' of 1819 marked a turning point. Radicals, trade unions and the Chartists fought back by challenging their exclusion from public spaces, creating their own sites and eventually constructing their own buildings or emigrating to America. This book also uncovers new evidence of protest in rural areas of northern England, including rural Luddism. It will appeal to academic and local historians, as well as geographers and scholars of social movements in the UK, France and North America.

About the Author:


Katrina Navickas is Senior Lecturer in History at the University of Hertfordshire

Review:


"Navickas not only examines the ways in which local elites organised carefully choreographed and highly ritualised public displays of loyalty, but also traces their systematic attempts to exclude radicals and their ideas from the civic body politic. Her 'thick' descriptions of the loyalist violence and intimidationELare not only chilling in their detail, but are redolent of E. P. Thompson's classic 'The Making of the English Working Class' in the way in which local detail is tellingly deployed both to illustrate and add nuance to a more general argument." - Reviews in History, Dr Mike Sanders, University of Manchester, September 2016


"The book remains interesting and informative throughout, and on the whole it is both well-organized and well-written. The research basis is better than solid. This book has merits that outweigh its weaknesses, and for anyone wishing to know more about British popular politics between 1789 and 1848 it will be essential reading." - Michael Turner, Appalachian State University, Labour/Le Travail 78 Volume 78, Fall 2016


"Readable and fascinating, Katrina Navickas book might be particularly of interest to modern day activists and historians in the North (particularly Manchester) but I expect it will also become a much studied book for social historians trying to understand the historic struggles that have shaped, quite literally, the world we live and struggle in today." - Resolute Reader


"Navickas is to be congratulated for producing a work of prodigious scholarship, the conclusions of which repay close attention by any scholar of modern popular protest and politics." - Matthew Roberts, Sheffield Hallam University, Parliamentary History


"Anyone interested in the long eighteenth century will welcome this fine monograph on a subject at the heart of debates on the 'popular' history of the period. The topics of 'space and place' have been around for some time, from the work of Mark Harrison (1988), James Vernon (1993), Paul Halliday (1998), Steve Poole (1999) and James Epstein (2003), but they have never been treated with the depth of research and the generosity of scope that are provided here. Katrina Navickas drills more deeply into the world of protest than any of her predecessors and her perceptive research is presented in a lively and readable narrative."
Frank O'Gorman, University of Manchester, English Historical Review


"This is an impressive volume that brings together recent research and insights about the uses of space to provide a convincing analysis of the importance of the concept to patterns of radical continuity between the late eighteenth and mid-nineteenth-century." - Anthony Taylor, Sheffield Hallam University, Journal of Social History
