The Politics of the Excluded,C. 1500-1850 (Themes in Focus Series)by Tim Harris
How powerless were the powerless? These essays trace the political life of marginalized groups from the Reformation to the Industrial Revolution. They show that they were capable of articulating in a public forum, but they were also often active participants in the political process themselves and taken seriously by the elites. The essays deal with riots, rumors, libels, seditious words, public opinion, the structures of local government, and the gendered dimensions of popular political participation.
