Barker brilliantly picks through the toxic brew of grievances that would, in 1381, boil over ... a serious and valuable book -- Helen Castor Literary Review Timely and comprehensive ... We could argue all day over our favourite turning points in England's history. Barker shows that, without doubt, the turmoil of 1381 cannot be left off anyone's list -- Paul Kingsnorth, Booker-nominated author of The Wake New Statesman Barker brings order to the patchwork of uprisings England, Arise purposely slows down the vertiginous speed of the revolt's progression to a more deliberate pace, in order to explore not that main events of the rebellion but their hinterland. In this, it is a considerable achievement, a meticulous anatomy of this most resonant of uprisings -- Thomas Penn Guardian A riveting new study of the rising Mail on Sunday Barker gives a richly detailed account of the England of 1381 based on painstaking detective work and resurrects from obscurity the ordinary men and women who enflamed the country The Times A thoroughly researched, engagingly written account of a moment when the world was - almost - turned upside down BBC History
