Max Beer's History is a classic, not only because it was a brilliant pioneering study, but also because it is still urgently relevant to a new generation of socialists. Just as Beatrice Webb complained that her comrades had "borrowed" it, while Tawney celebrated it in a justly famous essay, so today there are many who will treasure its radical insights into the ideas of those British thinkers, many of whom have long since been ignored or forgotten in most of our schools and some of our universities. Politics in modern Britain will make more sense to those who really study this book. This illustrated edition carries Tawney's original foreword to the first English edition, with a new introduction by Ken Coates.
