Booknews
As part of the movement among historians to downplay the concept of class and highlight the importance of ideas, Chadwick (politics, U. of the West of England, Bristol) investigates the relations between radical liberalism, laborism, socialism, and feminism during the target period by examining how those groups discussed the constitutional issues of the House of Lords, suffrage, and proportional representation. Thus he is expanding forward into the 20th century the new research agenda that revisionist historians and precursors in labor history have applied to the 19th century. Annotation c.
