Ok so 5 stars might just be a sign of the times but nevertheless this is a fine book all round. Poulsen was not a professional academic or historian but an Eastender, a lifelong Communist and a cabbie. And a teacher. Frankly he sounds like someone Iain Sinclair would have mentioned at some point. Cryptically.
More to the point, this is a clear and cogent history of how money, power, position and the people who revel in those things will treat those who don't possess them with staggering contempt

This book tells the story of English social rebellions from the Medieval to earlier modern eras. From an indigenous viewpoint, with some bitterness and irony. The author was a Cockney Londoner apparently with connections to the pre-1960s Communist Party of Great Britain.
