The Radical Soldier's Tale: John Pearman, 1819-1908 by Carolyn Steedman

First published in 1988, The Radical Soldier's Tale is both an introduction to and a transcript of his 'Memoirs', written after his retirement in 1881. In this autobiography he presents his life as a soldier during the Sikh Wars, his life as a policeman, and the ideologies which divided people from each other in the societies he had known and read about.

Carolyn Steedman introduces the 'Memoirs' by placing the document in its textual context, as well as the context of history and politics, and shows how it directs fascinating light on popular political thought in the mid-Victorian years. In her introduction she looks closely at the kind of narratives people have access to in different social circumstances and the stories they tell themselves to explain who they are. This book will be of particular interest to students of Victorian history and politics.
