The Verso Book of Dissent: Revolutionary Words from Three Millennia of Rebellion and Resistance is a compendium of revolt and resistance throughout the ages, updated to include resistance to war and economic oppression from Beijing and Cairo to Moscow and New York City.
To celebrate the release of the new edition - 50% off at the moment as part of our end-of-year sale - we've present a selection of key moments of dissent from the book.
To celebrate the publication of The Dignity of Chartism, the new collection of the late Dorothy Thompson’s groundbreaking essays on Chartism, we bring you Professor Malcolm Chase’s talk from the book’s launch event held at the Marx Memorial Library on the 5th June 2015.
In the talk, Malcolm highlights Dorothy’s pivotal position in the study of Chartism. Her work opened up new areas for the study of Chartism, particularly in the central position of women in the movement and the attempt to rehabilitate the grassroots leadership of the much-maligned Feargus O’Connor, and influenced generations of Chartist scholars.
