In 1855, on a dark and snowy December morning, Emmanuel Barthelemy was hanged for a double murder outside the gates of Newgate prison. What had brought him to this grisly end? His short and dramatic life is a tale of two cities. Follow Emmanuel Barthelemy – revolutionary, galley slave, barricade fighter and duellist – through the revolutionary turmoil of Paris and the backstreet plotting, in company of Marx and Engels, of Victorian London.

Marc Mulholland is Professor of Modern History at Oxford University. He has written widely on revolutionary movements.
