Booknews
Describes the persistence of an older political system alongside the rise of the early Tory and Whig parties, showing both the features that have given rise to the current party system in Britain and the differences between the political scene now and then. After reviewing the nature of Parliament, its constituencies, the electoral system, the voters, the press, and people without the vote, focuses on five successive periods of time. Biographical sketches of the main players are appended. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
