Reviews

"Sometimes in a reading life a book vaults over the perceived boundaries and goes on a skite of illumination, not particularly suggested in the initial intent. This is one such. . . . This canvas might have become unwieldy but instead, because of the deft organisation and intriguing subject divisions, it unfolds into a fascinating journey." * The Irish Times *
"Red Round Globe Hot Burning is a disturbing and challenging book. It kept me awake and note-taking through a whole night. ... Linebaugh's exploration of the assault on the Commons and how our antecedents struggled to resist the depredations is an invaluable education." * International Socialism *

"No one writes like Peter Linebaugh. Perhaps no one would dare to write like Linebaugh, a singular quality that will be found on virtually every page. . . . While it is nearly impossible to convey the flow of subjects embodied in Red Round Globe Hot Burning, the sweep of interracial history, the place of seemingly ordinary people in challenging the very basis of class society, will be understood better by those reading this worthy volume."

* Truthout *

"Peter Linebaugh has produced another masterful history 'from below' . . . . In language that is sometimes visceral, imaginative and often sublimely eloquent he analyses the conditions in which people were living and working, making connections, while leaving the reader with a global overview of the struggle against colonial and imperial power."


* Socialist Review *
