This book, like the volume on "Society and Politics in Ancient Rome," deals with the life of the common people, with their language and literature, their occupations and amusements, and with their social, political, and economic conditions. We are interested in the common people of Rome because they made the Roman Empire what it was. They carried the Roman standards to the Euphrates and the Atlantic; they lived abroad as traders, farmers, and soldiers to hold and Romanize the provinces, or they stayed at home, working as carpenters, masons, or bakers, to supply the daily needs of the capital. The other side of the subject which has engaged the attention of the author in studying these topics has been the many points of similarity which arise between ancient and modern conditions, and between the problems which the Roman faced and those which confront us.

“corrupt and moronic though the common people are seemingly becoming ... only in the common people can the true work be rooted, the true tradition rediscovered and re-informed” Charles Parker, BBC Radio Producer 1959. In 1958, in his best-selling book Culture and Society, Raymond Williams identified working-class culture as ‘a key issue in our own time’. Why this happened and how this subject was thought about and acted upon is the focus of this book. Paul Long investigates a variety of projects and practices that were designed to describe, validate, reclaim, rejuvenate or generate ‘authentic’ working-class culture as part of the re-imagining of Britishness in the context of the post-war settlement. Detailed case studies cover the wartime cultural activities of CEMA – the forerunner of the Arts Council - the Folk Revival, the impact of Richard Hoggart’s The Uses of Literacy, broadcasting and the radio work of Charles Parker, Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger, the roots of modern arts festivals in Arnold Wesker’s Centre 42 project as well as the impact of progressive education on children’s writing and the politics of the English language. ‘Only in the Common People: The Aesthetics of Class in Post-War Britain’ examines the assumptions, idealism and prejudices behind these projects and the terms of class as ‘the preoccupation of a generation’. This approach offers a historicisation of the broader ideas and debates that informed the development of the New Left and British social history and cultural theory, offering an understanding of the rise of respect for ‘the common man’.

The negro will not be alarmed at the unjust talk against him, as is often uttered by Mr. Tillman, of South Carolina. He will not be sent to the island of the sea to please Mr. Graves, of Georgia. The negro is here to stay, to work, to learn, to obey, to pray and to accumulate property and to become a responsible factor in his own country and nation. --Dr. John Jefferson Smallwood September 25, 1903 John J. Smallwood is the most eloquent negro orator that has ever spoken in Steubenville. He is dark in complexion, rather fine looking, a plain but substantial dresser, unassuming in his manners, a profound scholar, and a master of the pure English. He has a full round voice, very eloquent as a speaker, logical, graceful, and convincing. Upon the subject of the Negro Problem he has no equal in this country. The Steubenville Weekly Herald Star September 25, 1903 His style of oratory, which is dignified and graceful, is suggestive of that of Hon., Frederick Douglass, and his friends, of whom he has a host, numbering among them some of the leading men and women in New England, say that in time he will surpass Douglass. The Boston Globe November 16, 1890 On my return to America, on the question of labor, I learned that a colored man could better represent his race upon such issues when they came before the public. Dr. John Jefferson Smallwood The Boston Sunday Globe November 16, 1890 But through the broader knowledge which cultivated intelligence brings, Dr. Smallwood has not stopped at the race question, but has entered upon the agitation of temperance and labor, topics affecting American citizens, white and colored. The Boston Globe November 16, 1890 The Boston Gl I was only twelve years of age when I ran away from my birthplace of Rich Square, NC . . . I walked sixty miles from N.C. into the town of Franklin [VA] where my poor, slave-born father and mother once lived and where my great but misguided grandfather was executed Aug. [1831]. I speak of my grandfather (Nat Turner) who led the Southampton Insurrection in [1831] as being great. I do not mean in a foolish, unselfish way but as a fact. November 16, 1890 DDDDr. John Jefferson Smallwood December 26, 1903
