George Julian Harney was one of the half-dozen most important leaders of Chartism. A key figure in the history of English radicalism, Harney witnessed the Chartist movement from 1830s through to the beginnings of socialism from the 1880s and wrote about a range of topics during that time, including literature, foreign affairs, and politics. He wrote about literature, foreign affairs, and politics, subjects that should interest anyone with an interest in Victorian Studies. In his youth Harney was an admirer of the most radical figures of the French Revolution. The youngest member of the first Chartist Convention, he was an advocate of physical-force Chartism in 1838, and he greatest output of writings came from 1843through 1850 when he worked at the Northern Star. This selection from the Newcastle Weekly Chronicle is the first book to reprint any of his journalism.
