First published in 1999. For the first time since their appearance in Chartist newspapers these two major radical narratives are reprinted in a single volume.

The Political Pilgrim's Progress combines Utopian politics with Bunyanesque satire to tell the story of the journey of Radical and his family from the City of Plunder to the City of Reform.

Sunshine and Shadow is the only serialized novel to have been published in the Northern Star.

It brings together fictional biography and historical chronicle to form the first truly working-class novel.

Both texts offer a unique insight into the literary achievements of the Chartist movement, and will be a valuable and entertaining source for scholars of radical politics.

The texts are fully annotated, and the editor also provides an introduction to each story and a bibliography of recent scholarship.
