The Peterloo Massacre

by Joyce Marlow
£9.99   paperback  Ebury Publishing (2018)

The Peterloo Massacre by Joyce Marlow Unity of the oppressed can make a difference in politically uncertain times.
 
A peaceful protest turned tragedy; this is the true story of the working class fight for the vote.
 
On August 16 1819, in St Peter’s Field, Manchester, a large non-violent gathering demanding parliamentary reform turned into a massacre, leaving many dead and hundreds more injured.
 
This catastrophic event was one of the key moments of the age, a political awakening of the working class, and eventually led to ordinary people gaining suffrage. In this definitive account Joyce Marlow tells the stories of the real people involved and brings to life the atrocity the government attempted to cover up.
 
The Peterloo Massacre is soon to be the subject of a major film directed by Mike Leigh.
