How should we understand the relationship between slavery and industrial capitalism? What was the role of violence in the maintenance of the British empire? What might the street cries of oyster sellers tell us about life in early modern London?
Those questions and more are explored in Issue 88 of History Workshop Journal, now available online from Oxford University Press. With a feature on memory in China, a debate on the writing of military history, and a celebration of the life and work of Alun Howkins, as well as several standalone articles, HWJ 88 is once again filled cover-to-cover with the best groundbreaking radical history.
This week History Workshop Online celebrates the new issue with featuring companion pieces by HWJ authors and free access content from the journal. Watch this space!
