Revolutionary Lives

These books are short, sharp biographies of radical political figures. They open up the lives of the women and men who lived through extraordinary times, who struggled through revolution, reaction, violence, nationalism and colonialism, and who overturned understandings of race and gender. Reclaiming many from biographers who have erased their radicalism, this series puts revolutionary politics at the heart of each story. The series editors are: Sarah Irving, Teaching Fellow in History at Kings College, London // Paul Le Blanc, Professor of History at La Roche University, Pittsburgh.
