"This edition is a complete facsimile reprint of one of the most significant of the Chartist journals. The Red Republican, which appeared from June 22 to November 23, 1850, and The Friend of the People, from December 7 1850 to July 26, 1851, form in fact one journal, despite the short interval between them and the change of name - a change which is explained by Holyoake in the excerpt reproduced on the back of this jacket. Not only was Harney's journal a platform for English radical thought, expressing the ideas and chronicling the history of the later Chartist movement, it was also contributed to by most of the foreign 'socialist-democrat' and revolutionary exiles in London. It is thus a prime source, not only for its accounts of strikes and radical political action in England, but for the history of the continental refugees after the defeat of the European revolutions of 1848/49. Among these is the first English translation of the Communist Manifesto by Helen MacFarlane and later in The Friends of the People, we find the manifesto of the Chartist Convention of 1851, with the new slogan 'The Charter - and something more' - a statement of socialist policy still topical after more than a hundred years." - publisher.
