I am a historian of early modern Britain, and the author of A Radical History of Britain: Visionaries Rebels and Revolutionaries (Little, Brown, 2009). This offers the first single-volume narrative of British radicalism from Magna Carta to the present day. This blog is sort of about that book, though most of the posts, as you can see, range around pretty widely.
