This article explores and explains the rediscovery and reinvention of an early English radical (Thomas Spence) in the late nineteenth and twentieth century. It shows that Spence’s backward-looking and nostalgic radicalism was displaced in order to serve a movement increasingly dominated by themes of state socialism and progressivism.
