Socialism, Chartism and Co-operation - Nottingham 1844

In the dark days of the 1840s when Britain was hit by industrial stagnation and financial collapse, working class pioneers sought new lives and futures.  In Nottingham, courageous men and woman from the claustrophobic yards of the Parish of St.Mary and the gloomy streets of Narrow Marsh sought enlightenment and the right to freedom of association.  As chartists, socialists and co-operators, they challenged the inhumanities of the Poor Law, confronted the forces of established religion and championed new forms of democratic control.  This book tells the stories of some of these men and women from Nottingham in 1844.

Published to celebrate the opening of the first co-operative society in Nottingham in 1863.

This second edition includes "The Lost Missionary", published as a pamphlet in June 2015.
