People’s History

History tends to be viewed from the perspective of the rich and powerful, where the actions of small numbers are seen to dictate the course of world affairs. But this perspective conceals the role of ordinary women and men, as individuals or as parts of collective organisations, in shaping the course of history. This People’s History book series puts ordinary people and mass movements centre stage, and looks at the great moments of the past from the bottom up.
