Author: W Henry Brown
The original 1925 edition of Pathfinders included 74 biographical sketches of those whose names appeared on the Reformers’ Memorial in Kensal Green, London. Long out of print, the illustrated volume, like the Memorial itself, covers co-operators, chartists, radical journalists and writers, trade unionists, educationalists and feminists.
In this new edition, published shortly after the refurbishment of the monument, Stan Newens MEP has included biographies of the 11 reformers added to the memorial later, and of W Henry Brown himself. The brief ‘lives’ give a flavour of the people and the times in which they lived.
“A study of the names suggests that there is no one highway towards social peace. The avenues are many, as are the natures and dispositions of the people for whom the work is done” – W Henry Brown
