Modern England Before the Reform Bill, Volume 1 (Barnes & Noble Digital Library)
From the Reform Bill to the Present TimeeBook - 2011
Britain's Reform Bill of 1832 expanded voting and workers' rights, corrected electoral abuses, and abolished slavery in the colonies. In this first of a two-volume 1898 social history, the author paints a picture of the country before reform. As Napoleon falls, the democratic stirrings are on the rise in a world inhabited by Whigs and Tories, royalists and conspirators, orators and poets.
