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

by David Rosenberg - £9.99  Pluto Press (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780745334097 | ISBN 10: 0745334091

The radical response to conservative heritage tours and banal day-tripper guides, Rebel Footprints brings to life the history of social movements in the capital. Transporting readers from well-known landmarks to history-making hidden corners, David Rosenberg tells 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, the book 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 Londonís radical campaigners against the backdrop of the cityís multi-faceted development. Self-directed walks pair with narratives that seamlessly blend history, politics and geography. Specially commissioned maps and illustrations immerse the reader in the story of the city.
 
Whether visiting it for the first time, or born and raised in it, Rosenberg invites you to see London as you never have before: the nationís capital as its radical centre.
