The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists tells the story of a group
of working men who are joined one day by Owen, a journeyman-prophet with
a vision of a just society. Owens spirited attacks on the greed and dishonesty
of the capitalist system rouse his fellow men from their political quietism.
A masterpiece of wit and political passion, this is one of the most authentic
novels of English working class life ever written.
This enduring favourite is now reinvigorated by a smart new jacket and
exclusive extra material as part of Harper Perennials Modern Classics
line of reissues. Now its timeless message of justice, equality and
reason will be introduced to a whole new generation of discerning readers.
