"The Great Rising is a re-interpretation of the revolt, the rebels and their often colourful leaders, and is the first new history for nearly one hundred years. Alastair Dunn charts the causes of the Great Rising, and examines how the burgeoning economic expectations of the generation succeeding the Black Death were frustrated by the landlords' determined defense of serfdom, and the growing burden imposed upon the people by the crown, culminating in the hated Poll Taxes. He asks whether the Great Rising had a coherent set of aims linking its participants in different parts of England, follows the dramatic story of the rebels in London, and highlights the largely forgotten, but equally exciting story of rebellion in other parts of England."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

In this compelling account of the "peasants' revolt" of 1381, in which rebels burned hundreds of official archives and attacked other symbols of authority, Steven Justice demonstrates that the rebellion was not an uncontrolled, inarticulate explosion of peasant resentment but an informed and tactical claim to literacy and rule. Focusing on six brief, enigmatic texts written by the rebels themselves, Justice places the English peasantry within a public discourse from which historians, both medieval and modern, have thus far excluded them. He recreates the imaginative world of medieval villagers—how they worked and governed themselves, how they used official communications in unofficial ways, and how they produced a disciplined insurgent ideology.
