    I read this whilst at University in 1979 all 900 pages of it I thought then, and I still think that it is one of the best academic history books ever written It has its faults and controversies, but it changed the way history was studied following its publication in 1963 Thompson put at the centre the study of class and looked at those outside of the powerful elites of church and state and most closely at the lives of ordinary people the Luddites, the weavers, early Methodists, followers of the prophetess Joanna Southcott ever heard of her , the mob, papists, artisans, agricultural workers, the new factory workers, trade unionists and so on This is commonplace now, but it wasn t then.Thompson was a Marxist intellectual in the same tradition and generation as Christopher Hill and Eric Hobsbawm but in my opinion a better historian Thompson was a communist, who left the party in 1956 following the invasion of Hungary as did many others He was interested in the nature of class and the nature of Englishness the working class being a in struggle with the middle class bourgeoisie He was interested because he brought his ideas into the present he was a strong critic of the labour governments of the 60s and 70s and in later life concentrated on the campaign against nuclear weapons There are too few women in the book working cl...

    This book was first published the year I was born That ought to perhaps speak against it being a book worth reading today not because the year I was born was a particularly hopeless one, but because 55 years is a significant amount of time and often, on a topic like this one, new research makes a book like this a bit obsolete This is also quite a long book, so you might think there could easily be a newer, leaner and snappier version of this somewhere And there probably is The point here is that this book will continue to be read even if such an alternative recent book proves to be better aimed at our diminished concentration spans and so on That will be due as much to the method used in this book, rather than just its literal content But we will get to that at the end of this review.I m not going to spend any time on the relationship this book has to Methodism, other than to say that while Methodism doesn t come out of this book terribly well, and I can definitely see that if I were a Methodist the thought of a dartboard with this guy s face on it would seem pretty appealing...

    Somehow I suspect that ink has been spilled on the insignificant Battle of Waterloo insignificant because if not defeated ten miles south of Brussels on the 18th of July Napoleon would have been beaten somewhere else at a later date than on Primitive Methodism yet to my thinking it is Primitive Methodism and other similar religious movements has had of an impact on the outlooks, worldviews and cultures of millions of English lives all the so considering the knock on impacts on voting patterns and participation in public life It is those millions who, to varying extents, get some coverage in this book.The downside of Thompson s book was having read it I didn t have any sense of there having been an English Working Class that came to be through a given historical process except possibly indirectly by implication.The upside of this book is it is a hugely wide ranging Methodism, Primitive Methodism, Chartism reform of Parliament, Joanna Southcott her followers etc etc look at England at the beginning of the 19th century from a perspective other than that of the Government and generally other than that of the Upper classes That is reason alone to read it This is the perspective on being governed, being spied upon, having agents provocateur work among you and upon you Something that thanks to this book we can see has been a constant thread in British history since the French revolution yet rarely comes to the surface view spoiler thinking here of the spy...

    Well, it took me darn near a month to finish this monster 800 pages of a book Can t say I regret the experience, though Truly , this is a masterpiece, both in terms of its substance and its approach I could quite easily write then a thousand words on this book, but hey, this is , right Before I begin, I would like to state up front that I am not a historian or a graduate student of history Please forgive me if my review contains incorrect statements The Making of the English Working Class is precisely what its awkward title describes a history of the developments leading to the emergence of the modern industrial working class in England and Scotland, sort of Wales and Ireland are excluded, although Irish immigrants living in England to figure in some parts of the book The time period covered is roughly the 1790 s to the 1840 s Thompson starts with a description of Dissent , discusses the influence of the French Revolution on that tradition Dissent , spends a good chunk of the book describing the effect of the industrial revolution on the lives and lifestyles of the workers in industrial England, and then spends an equal amount of time describing the reaction of the workers and their leaders to this adjustment in circumstances.Along the way, Thompson takes a hatchet to historians on the left, right, and center His section on the change in circumstances of the workers in England is most critical of writers like F.A Hayek, i.e those writers wh...

    Been thinking about this book again I m thinking we that is, American society could use an encyclopedic work called The Makings of a Permanent American Underclass. It would sort of be like Thompson s classic in reverse rather than the story of how various bonds of solidarity formed against a background of intense material deprivation, it would start with a situation of general affluence and show how class war then recommenced from above, eroding all social bonds to the point where we practically lack the concept of solidarity any This is the story of neoliberalism, I think I floated this idea to an old commie friend of mind, and he got back to me with some insight he s about the same age as me As I see it, the emergent underclass has no clear analogue in all of human history There are older people living on reduced incomes but who own houses and have no student debt, yes But it is primarily the very young who constitute this giant, unruly mass The older generation at least has some memory of group solidarity unions, churches, bowling leagues but, for the young, I fear the worst It seems to me that ...

    A truly excellent work of history I d had this on my mental to read list for a very long time I m glad I finally read it Thompson pulls together a massive amount of research to show how the working class became a group that saw itself as a gr...

    I ve been meaning to read this book since having it recommended to me by older high school students during the sixties Its size and the fear that it would be highly technical put me off Ironically, I misjudged, just as I had with Das Kapital Neither Thompson nor Marx were as difficult as I d expected Thompson s book is, as it says, about the English not the Scottish, not the Welsh, not the Irish, except insofar as they worked in England lower orders from approximately 1789 the inspiration of the French Revolution until about 1832 the Reform Bill I write lower orders as the notion of a working class arose, according to Thompson, during this period And this, the working class , is not, in his acceptation, in the retrospective sense imposed by subsequent sociologists and historians exploring the origins of such No, rather, as the title suggests, it is in the sense of what some of the lower orders made of themselves during this period Very much this book is about the self consciousness and agency of English working men and women.Although Thompson is usually identified as a Marxist and Communist, he displays no...

    This book has been my Everest It was first shown to me by my lovely husband who has very different reading habits and a very different class background to me To me nanny is ya ma s ma To him his nanny was someone employed by his mum and dad to watch him when they were at get the drift He reads a LOT of non fiction and loves this kinds of deep, trying tome whereas I am a lover of fiction, but he pointed it out as a really important text for understanding the deep class issues ingrained in the history of our English heritage So he bought it for melike 2 years ago And here we are I finally finished it This book does exactly what it says on the tin with nobs on Do you want to know everything there is to know about the working class in England between the 18th and 19th century that shaped the way we see class today Then buy and read this book By no means is this a fun and frothy beach read, this is a series academic text and has been incredibly useful in my own literary studie...

    OK, it s been on my currently reading shelf for a long time When I seemed to stall out at around p 632, I know many of you were worried I would never finish it But never fear, I braved the final 200 pages and made it all the way to the end.A book so long contains many different things Some passages were indeed difficult to get through But many were absolutely fascinating.The final chapter, about the Reform Bill of 1832, seemed particularly poignant in the light of the current debacle of health care reform That is, a story of reform being co opted by all the wrong people and, having begun with hopes for universal franchise, ending wit...

    With the changes of the Enlightenment, French Revolution, and industrial revolution capitalism, as we know it was gestating Without sounding Marxist the working class as a collective identity was also being forged by these events With the mix of oppression, industrialism, new thinking from revolutions outside England working people in a hodgepodge of group...
