They might be termed 'the revolt of the inarticulate', the protest of people unable as yet to find a language to frame their aspirations. These protests take such forms as bnaditry, rural sectet societies, millenarian movements and religious sects and, in pre- industrial cities, mob risings. The author collected much of the materian 'on the spot' and in an appendix, 'in thier own voices', sets out documents, some of them semi-literate, as illustrations of theme." from the jacket flap.
