ABSTRACT
The article assesses the future of labor history, commenting on John Belchem's review of the book by Patrick Joyce titled "Visions of the People: Industrial England and the Questions of Class, 1848-1914." The book raises several questions relevant to the future of labor history. It shows that Joyce's framework in the book is not merely a methodological device but a theoretical construction which needs to be challenged from the standpoint of labor history. Lastly, the article also examines the relationship between the working-class movement and Chartism.
