Christopher Hillís classic work, The World Turned Upside Down, was published in 1972. The book, though much criticised, remains one of the most popular books on the history of the English Revolution, offering an enduringly attractive and accessible introduction to the period. In order to mark the 40th anniversary of its publication this conference will bring together experts on popular politics, radical religion, political ideas and the literature of the 1640s, to offer critical appreciations of the book and its influence.
