FROM THE AUTHORS OF RADICAL SYDNEY

THE BARBER WHO READ HISTORY

ESSAYS IN RADICAL HISTORY

Sometimes people read history and are overwhelmed.

They discover a nightmare past of conspiracies and duplicities.

Only the doings of powerful people are recorded.

They conclude that history has no room for people like them.

In these essays, Rowan Cahill and Terry Irving show that a knowledge of history can make people want to act in order to make history.

The authors criticise mainstream history for its top-down certainties. Instead, they see history from the bottom-up, acknowledging the productivity and creativity of working people.

They argue for a radical history that reveals uncertainties and challenges, leaving everything, including the future, open.
