Rebel Footprints
Rebel Footprints: A Guide to Uncovering London's Radical History | David Rosenberg
2 posts | 1 read | 1 to read
A truly radical response to conservative heritage tours and banal day trips, Rebel Footprints brings to life the history of social movements in Englands capital. David Rosenberg transports readers from well-known landmarks to history-making hidden corners, while telling 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: Rosenberg 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 Londons radical campaigners against the backdrop of the citys multi-faceted development. Self-directed walks pair with narratives that seamlessly blend history, politics, and geography, while specially commissioned maps and illustrations immerse the reader in the story of the city. Whether youre visiting London for the first time, or born and raised there, Rosenberg invites you to see London as you never have before--the radical center of the English-speaking world.
