Description

This book employs a variety of methodologies, including thematic survey, biographical enquiry, and specific study, to examine British and Irish parliamentary history between the exclusion crisis and the Great Reform Act.

  • Casts new light on familiar themes and also introduces previously unexplored issues
  • Discusses important topics and figures of the period, such as Robert Peel; Frederick, Prince of Wales; Irish regulation of trade; the Excise Crisis; the impact of the West Indies on the mid-Georgian elections; and the Glorious Revolution of 1688
  • Utilizes the Irish Legislation Database to re-examine the history of the pre-Union Irish parliament
  • Unites the scholarship of prominent figures in the field with the voices of younger historians
