During the great depression year of 1893 (the worst in the history of the United States until then), when he was only seventeen, Jack London (1876-1916) joined the nation-wide protest movement known as Kelly's Army to march from San Francisco to Washington with thousands of others. He spent an entire year on the road, an experience which he summarized in his autobiographical memoir Jack London, by Himself as follows: "I tramped all through the United States, from California to Boston, and up and down, returning to the Pacific Coast by way of Canada, where I got into jail and served a term for vagrancy, and the whole tramping experience made me become a Socialist.". Although he had spent more time on the road tramping than he did in the Klondike a few short years afterwards, only five of his stories dwell on this timeless theme (84 of his stories are based on his Klondike experiences) – and all the more precious they are for that, in our eyes. If you are going to read only one of his rare "hobo" stories, this hard-nosed but delicate and even moving account of a day in one tramp's life, first published in 1911, is the one to go for - somehow it says it all.

"One of the most important and compelling books I've ever read, by one of Britain's most gifted writers. If you want to understand why we are in this crisis, listen to the voices all too often airbrushed from the political conversation" OWEN JONES Now We Have Your Attention makes sense of what is happening in British politics by taking a radically different perspective: the people's. From a warehouse in Manchester to a pub in Essex, from the outskirts of Glasgow to a racecourse in Durham, Jack Shenker uncovers the root causes of our current crisis and the future direction of British politics through the lives of ordinary individuals. Taking us deep into communities hollowed out by austerity and decades of economic disadvantage, among a generation crippled by precarious work and unaffordable housing, he shows where the chaos at Westminster ultimately springs from - and how disillusionment with it is fuelling a passionate engagement with politics of a completely different kind: local, personal, effective and utterly fearless. Joining a 'McStrike' protest on a roundabout in Cambridge and a gathering of the London Renters' Union in the aftermath of Grenfell, meeting hard-right bloggers in Newcastle and climate change protesters in Brighton, Shenker draws on exceptional access to campaign groups, activist movements and grassroots gatherings throughout the country - including unique access to Momentum, who have re-radicalised the Labour party from the outside in - to introduce us to the citizens and leaders of tomorrow: people who are changing things for themselves. Inspiring and terrifying in equal measure, Now We Have Your Attention uncovers a revolutionary transformation in attitudes and behaviour, and a future that will shape us all.

Michael An Gof

Michael Joseph (better known as Michael An Gof, where An Gof is Cornish for "blacksmith", died 24 June 1497) and Thomas Flamank (a Bodmin landowner's son and London lawyer) were the leaders of the Cornish Rebellion of 1497. The rebels marched on London to protest at King Henry VII's levying a tax to pay for an invasion of Scotland in retaliation for the Scots' support for the pretender Perkin Warbeck. The Cornish believed that this was a northern affair and had nothing to do with them, they also believed that the tax was the work of the King's corrupt counsellors and marched to London to bring this to the King's attention. They were hopeful of gaining support from people in Kent the focus of Jack Cade's rebellion of 1450 but despite heading to Cade's former rallying site at Blackheath they gained little backing. As a result, the Cornish rebels were beaten by the King's forces at the Battle of Deptford Bridge on 17 June 1497 on a site adjacent to the River Ravensbourne. An Gof fled to Greenwich after the battle, but was captured and sent to the Tower of London. As one of the leaders, An Gof was executed with Flamank on 24 June 1497.
