John Rees - The Levellers' Revolution

This forthcoming book by John Rees is a detailed exploration of the Levellers during the English Revolution. Drawing heavily on archive material and exploring how they both shaped and were shaped by political events in the 1640s, Rees puts these radicals at the heart of developments.

I've written a longer review of this book for publication elsewhere and I'll link that review here when it is published. In the meantime here are some other reviews I've done of books related to the English Civil War and Revolution.
