The making of the English working class by E. P Thompson( Book )

170 editions published between 1963 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 3,196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This account of artisan and working-class society in its formative years, 1780 to 1832, adds an important dimension to our understanding of the nineteenth century. E.P. Thompson shows how the working class took part in its own making and re-creates the whole life experience of people who suffered loss of status and freedom, who underwent degradation and who yet created a culture and political consciousness of great vitality
William Morris : romantic to revolutionary by E. P Thompson( Book )

87 editions published between 1955 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,682 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This biographical study is a window into 19th-century British society and the life of William Morristhe great craftsman, architect, designer, poet, and writerwho remains a monumental and influential figure to this day. This account chronicles how his concern with artistic and human values led him to cross what he called the river of fire and become a committed socialistcommitted not only to the theory of socialism but also to the practice of it in the day-to-day struggle of working women and men in Victorian England. While both the British Labor Movement and the Marxists have venerated Morris, this legacy of his life proves that many of his ideas did not accord with the dominant reforming tendencies, providing a unique perspective on Morris scholarship
Whigs and hunters : the origin of the Black act by E. P Thompson( Book )

Family and inheritance : rural society in Western Europe, 1200-1800 by Jack Goody( Book )

27 editions published between 1976 and 2011 in English and Italian and held by 1,021 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This pioneering book examines different aspects of the inheritance customs in rural Western Europe in the pre-industrial age: for families and whole societies, the roles of lawyers in reducing them to a common system, and the recurring debate on the merits of various inheritance customs in shaping particular kinds of society. At first sight the study of inheritance customs may appear to be a dull affair, concerned with outdated practices of hair-splitting lawyers; certainly, little academic interest has been shown in the subject. Yet inheritance customs are vital means for the reproduction of the social system, by the transmission of property and other rights through the family. Various family structures and social arrangements are linked by different means of inheritance. This book will interest a wide range of historians, students, postgraduates and teachers alike, whether they are concerned with social, economic, demographic or legal history, in the medieval, early modern or modern periods, and whether their interests are directed to England or other countries of Western Europe; it will also be valuable to social anthropologists, sociologists and historians of ideas. A comprehensive glossary of technical terms has been added for the non-specialist
Customs in common by E. P Thompson( Book )

44 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,021 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here, at last, is Customs in Common, the remarkable sequel to E.P. Thompson's influential, landmark volume of social history, The Making of the English Working Class. The product of years of research and debate, Customs in Common describes the complex culture from which working class institutions enlarged in England--a panoply of traditions and customs that the new working class fought to preserve well into Victorian times." "In a text marked by both empathy and erudition, Thompson investigates the gradual disappearance of a range of cultural customs against the backdrop of the great upheavals of the eighteenth century. As villagers were subjected to a legal system increasingly hostile to custom, they tried both to resist and to preserve tradition, becoming, as Thompson explains, "rebellious, but rebellious in defence of custom." Although some historians have written of the riotous peasants of England and Wales as if they were mainly a problem for magistrates and governments, for Thompson it is the rulers, landowners, and governments who were a problem for the people, whose exuberant culture preceded the formation of working-class institutions and consciousness." "Using a wide range of sources, Thompson shows how careful attention to fragmentary evidence helps to decode the fascinating symbolism of shaming rituals including "rough music," and practices such as the ritual divorce known as "wife sale." And in examining the vigorous presence of women in food riots from the sixteenth century onwards, he sheds further light on gender relations of the time." "Essential reading for all those intrigued by English history, Customs in Common has a special relevance today, as traditional economies are being replaced by market economies throughout the developing world. The rich scholarship and depth of insight in Thompson's new work offer many clues to understanding contemporary changes around the globe."--J

Witness against the beast : William Blake and the moral law by E. P Thompson( Book )

28 editions published between 1982 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 940 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Witness Against the Beast is a groundbreaking interdisciplinary study in which the renowned social historian E. P. Thompson contends that most of the assumptions scholars have made about William Blake are misleading and unfounded. Brilliantly reexamining Blake's cultural milieu and intellectual background, Thompson detects in Blake's poetry a repeated call to resist the usury and commercialism of the 'Antichrist' embodied by contemporary society--to 'witness against the beast'." -- back cover

The poverty of theory & other essays by E. P Thompson( Book )

43 editions published between 1978 and 2008 in English and held by 708 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic collection of essays by E.P. Thompson, one of England's most renowned socialist voices, remains a staple text in the history of Marxist theory. The bulk of the book is dedicated to Thompson's famous polemic against Louis Althusser and what he considers the reductionism and authoritarianism of Althusserian structuralism. In lively and erudite prose, Thompson argues for a self-critical and unapologetically humanist Marxist tradition. Also included are three essays of considerable importance to the development of the New Left.--Publisher website

Arguments within English Marxism by Perry Anderson( Book )

2 editions published between 1980 and 2012 in Spanish and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En 1978 el renombrado historiador E. P. Thompson emprendió un devastador ataque contra la obra y la influencia de Louis Althusser en su libro Miseria de la teoría. Perry Anderson, que no se consideraba a sí mismo un althusseriano, vio en la obra de Thompson una doble oportunidad. Por una parte, la ocasión para tratar de establecer un diálogo fraternal con Thompson que eliminara la pasión, quizá innecesaria, que marcó la vieja polémica que ambos habían mantenido (especialmente entre 1964 y 1965) sobre las peculiaridades de la formación social inglesa y que, aun marcando las diferencias, mostrara con claridad la verdadera estatura teórica, moral y política que Anderson atribuye a su involuntario adversario. Por otra, la posibilidad de discutir algunas cuestiones candentes del materialismo histórico actualizadas por obras como las de Thompson, Althusser, Gerald Cohen y el propio Anderson
