What affect did the economic and social changes of the period have on the political system? Was increasing religious diversity the result of new social challenges? How did the immense economic power of entrepreneurs find expression in the British political system?
In this, the second part of his history of nineteenth-century Britain, Richard Brown examines the poitical and religious developments that took place between the 1780s and 1840s. Unlike other accounts of the period, this work examines British -- not just English -- history, the elite and the working people, men as well as women.
