Few historians in this century have had as lasting and marked an impact as E. P. Thompson. His rewriting of English history, beginning with The Making of the English Working Class, has affected a whole generation of historians. At the same time, his role as a political activist was second only to Bertrand Russells, whose mantle he inherited as the leader of the European nuclear disarmament movement. With essays by an array of important English and American historians and a comprehensive bibliography, this new volume, published shortly after Thompsons death, examines his work in a variety of fields, evaluating his extraordinary influence and paying homage to his remarkable career.
