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.
John Rees's book The Leveller Revolution offers a gripping narrative of the Seventeenth Century revolutionary democrats the Levellers. The Leveller's philosophy was perhaps best summed up by Thomas Rainsborough at the famous Putney Debates - that "the poorest that is in England hath a live to live as the greatest".
To celebrate the launch of John's book, Verso have teamed up with Philosophy Football to offer an exclusive Leveller t-shirt plus a half-priced signed copy of The Leveller Revolution bundle. For more information, and to order, click here.
