The Levellers, formed out of the explosive tumult of the 1640s and the battlefields of the Civil War, are central figures in the history of democracy. In this thrilling narrative, John Rees brings to life the raucous streets of London and the clattering printers’ workshops that stoked the uprising, the actions of the rank and file of the New Model Army and the furious Putney debates where the Levellers argued with Oliver Cromwell for the future of English democracy. This story reasserts the revolutionary nature of the 1642–51 wars and the role of ordinary people in this pivotal moment in history.

John Rees is an historian, broadcaster and campaigner. He is coauthor of A People’s History of London and author of The Leveller Revolution and Timelines: A Political History of the Modern World, among other titles. He is a Visiting Research Fellow at Goldsmith’s, University of London and a National Officer of the Stop the War Coalition.
