The Manchester Man traces the fall and rise of Jabez Clegg, a foundling swept away in his cradle by the River Irk in flood in 1799.
In this politically significant work the narrative is set against the back-drop of the three decades from the Napoleonic Wars to the 1832 Reform Act, crucial years in Manchester's development as the world's first industrial city.
It contains a vivid and highly accurate portrayal of the notorious Peterloo Massacre and its aftermath, as well as providing a valuable insight into the roles of some of the city's founding fathers.
A riveting read for the casual reader and the serious student of Manchester history alike, complete with original illustrations and Introduction by Malc Cowle.
