Return of Revenge of Shameless Self-promotion Sunday

What I’ve been reading today: Jonathan Spence, The Search for Modern China

It’s a beautiful May day in the bright, sunny South. And it’s been a spell but I’ve been trying to keep things a bit more active once again here at the Rad Geek People’s Daily, and I feel like the time is right for a return to Shamelessness.

So, gentle reader, what have you been up to lately? What have you been working on? Got anything big coming up? Anything you’ve written lately? Leave a link and a short description for your post in the comments. Or fire away about anything else you might want to talk about.

Don’t hold back. Let’s get Shameless again.

    Been reading “Village Revolts” by Roger B. Manning. It’s an interesting account of late medieval and early modern English riots and revolts in agricultural and forest provinces. Riots were most present in times of dearth, and folks furthest from the city centers were thought of as especially dangerous and liable to rise up against enclosures and other forms of gentry control. It’s an interesting read, but I’d wish he would go into other forms of popular protest. I know riot were not the only form of resistance, though they were the most dramatic and certainly capture the historian’s imagination.
