At the end of the English Civil War, Gerrard Winstanley and his comrades, known as Diggers, went to St. George's Hill, to farm the common land and to distribute the food for free amongst themselves. Winstanley's extraordinary writings from this period have remained a huge influence for many on the Left and are cited as some of the earliest examples of communist thought. Legendary voice of the Left Tony Benn examines Winstanley's work and argues that, as we face an ever greater enclosure of the commons, he can still inspire us to turn our world upside down. Revolutions : classic revolutionary writings set ablaze by today's radical writers.This essential series features classic texts by key figures who took center stage during a period of insurrection. Each book is introduced by a major contemporary radical writer who shows how these incendiary words still have the power to inspire, to provoke and maybe to ignite new revolutions.

Radical statesman and Member of Parliament for over fifty years, Tony Benn is the pre-eminent diarist of his generation. His political activity continued after 'retirement' through mass meetings, broadcasts and in more recent years through social media. A widower since 2000, Tony Benn died at his home in London on 14th March 2014.
