The London Hanged Book Description:

Peter Linebaugh's groundbreaking history has become an inescapable part of any understanding of the rise of capitalism.

In this new edition Peter Linebaugh reinforces his original arguments with detailed responses to his critics based on an impressive array of historical sources.
