Luddites of the 19th Century

Our guest on this episode is Peter Linebaugh, an American Marxist historian who specializes in British history, Irish history, labor history, and the history of the colonial Atlantic.

He is the author of the pamphlet Ned Ludd & Queen Mab: Machine-Breaking, Romanticism, and the Several Commons of 1811-12.
