E.P.Thompson : Critical Perspectives
The work of E.P. Thompson as historian, socialist and peace activist has been enormously influential. Yet attempts to assess the impact of his work as a whole have been rare. This book evaluates the impact of his work, bringing together a range of authors who, in original essays, assess the main dimensions of Thompson's contribution.
