 Robert Christgau: Living in a Material World: Raymond Williams' Long Revolution
Williams was an enraptured admirer of Finnegans Wake when he decided to take up fiction as a vocation in the early '50s, and although he soon embraced conventional narrative technique, he's never stopped chafing at what publishers dictate to be publishable length; like Joyce, he wants his novels to contain whole worlds.
Williams is torn by the same contradictions that rip at all but his most self-deceived or cold-hearted allies: on the one hand he sees that reform's ended up next to nowhere, and on the other hand he sees where revolution's ended up.
Williams bypasses Austen because he wasn't ready for her (though he was by the time of The Country and the City, which reprises several of the ideas here, sometimes almost verbatim).

 New Georgia Encyclopedia: Philip Lee Williams (b. 1950)
In Final Heat (1992), Williams uses the Southern Gothic mode to relate the story of a depraved rich girl in love with a mechanic and their botched robbery and escape from a small southern town.
Writing in the voice of Henry Hawthorne, a southern family servant who lived during the American Revolution, Williams tells the tale of the rambunctious and revolutionary Charleston maid Jenny Dorset and also creates an exceptionally realistic memoir (complete with descriptive titles and a dedication to President Washington).
Williams returns to a more dramatic mode with the historical novel A Distant Flame (2004), for which he received the 2004 Michael Shaara Award for Civil War Fiction.

 Albert Rhys Williams
Albert Rhys Williams (Sept 28, 1883-Feb 27, 1962), a labor organizer and journalist, was a witness to and a participant in the Russian Revolution of October 1917.
Williams was distressed that his own country not only failed to support the Russian Revolution, but, while he was in Vladivostok, sent troops to the Far East to oppose it.
Williams must have discovered that his mature views were not inconsistent with being a Unitarian, since his son, Rhys Williams, a Unitarian minister in Boston, claimed him as such.

Williams about the role of the United Nations in maintaining international peace and security, suggesting that since its inception over sixty years ago, the UN’s efforts have been plagued by politics, a lack of funding, and lack of global support, its future impact is uncertain.
In response, Jody Williams, recognizing the importance and potential of the United Nations noted however, that many of the UN’s serious flaws stem from its origins as a post-World War II creation of the self-proclaimed victors.

 Harold Williams
Harold Williams, the son of a Nonconformist minister from England, was born in New Zealand in 1876.
Throughout the revolution, when the city was actually under the control of thousands of soldiers, they behaved with few exceptions like thorough gentleman.
The sharp repulse given to this firebrand was a healthy sign of the growth of practical sense of the Socialist wing, and the generally moderate and sensible tone of the conference of provincial workers' and soldiers' deputies was another hopeful indication of the passing of the revolutionary fever.

Williams was still months away from earning his state license when, in 1921, he got a boost from a former Polytechnic High classmate, Louis Cass.

 Susan Dunn/jefferson revolution
As the 19th century dawned, Dunn explains, the war for independence may have been over, but the true outcome of the American Revolution was still very much in doubt.
Dunn's new book, "Jefferson's Second Revolution," is lively, highly readable account of how the deadlocked election of 1800 helped give voice to some of those "other Americans," creating noisy conflict of parties and factions that we now accept as fundamental to democracy.
Dunn, who teaches at Williams College in Massachusetts, has a gift for telling the complex story of a sea change in American politics, giving it real immediacy and making it at least as interesting (and sometimes more than) the current partisan conflicts that welter around us.

When 'The Long Revolution' first appeared in 1961, much of the acclaim it received was based on its prescriptions for Britain in the '60s, which form a relatively brief final section of the whole.
The "long revolution" of the title is a cultural revolution, which Williams sees as having unfolded alongside the democratic revolution and the industrial revolution.
With this book Williams led the way in recognizing the importance of the growth of the popular press, the growth of standard English, and the growth of the reading public in English-speaking culture and in Western culture as a whole.
