Free eBook: Ragged Trousered Philanthropists

Via Twitter from top_book:


The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists (1910) is the only book ever written by Robert Tressell (the pen name of Robert Noonan). Part novel, part socialist propaganda and part biography, Tressell never lived to see the book published.

It has been called the book that won the general election for Labour after the end of World War II; the veteran MP Tony Benn describes it as “a torch to pass from generation to generation”.

Sounds like something just right for these times.

It’s a PDF, but don’t let that stop you.
