Who took part in the widespread disturbances which periodically shook eighteenth-century London? What really motivated the food rioters who helped to spark off the French Revolution? How did the movement of agricultural labourers destroying new machinery spread from one village to another in the English countryside? How did the sans-culottes organise in revolutionary Paris?

George Rude was the first historian to ask such questions and in doing so he identified 'the faces in the crowd' in some of the crucial episodes in modern European history. An established classic of 'history from below', The Crowd in History is remarkable above all for the clarity with which it deals with the full sweep of complex historical events. Whether in Berllin, Beijing or Soweto, crowds continue to make history, and George Rude's work retains all its freshness and relevance for students of history and politics and the general reader alike.
