It is 50 years since the publication of E P Thompson's 'The Making of the
English Working Class'.

A BBC radio programme broadcast yesterday discusses it's significance:

For all its flaws, for me the book was an extremely important attempt to
recover agency, subjectivity and experience from the violence of liberal,
Stalinist and neo-Trotskyist abstractions.
