Britain has a long tradition of radicalism and this tradition has been the topic of much interest to and much debate amongst scholars. In a volume which honours one of the subject's most renowned and respected historians, Malcolm I. Thomis, a distinguished team of contributors present fresh and inspiring essays which focus on some of the events, people and ideas which shaped the currents of radicalism in the turbulent years now appropriately described as the 'age of romanticism and revolution'. British political history in recent years has taken a so-called 'linguistic turn' and this collection reflects that trend in exploring the networks and culture of radical enthusiasm from the time of the American Revolution to the period of Chartist activity, thus ensuring the value of this book for literary scholars and historians of all levels.
