About the Book: Ideology, Absolutism and the English Revolution: Debates of the British Communist Historians 1940-1956 This book offers a fascinating insight into ideas in the making a glimpse into some of the early debates inside the History Group of the Communist Party of Great Britain, whose members included Christopher Hill, Rodney Hilton and Eric Hobsbawm. The outstanding contribution to historical studies of these and other members of the group is now widely recognised. The debates they initiated formed the ground for academic research that is still continuing, in particular their work on the nature of the English civil war and revolution in the 17th century, and on the development of capitalism in Britain. This book focuses on the debates of the 16th and 17th century section of the group and their work on ideology and absolutism. It reproduces original documentary material single contributions, reports and minutes from the debates, and also includes an informative introductory essay as well as useful notes and appendices.
