London Crowds in the Reign of Charles II: propaganda and politics from the Restoration until the exclusion crisis

£19.99

Product description

Used very good, reading creases to spine, light shelf wear and bumping to covers, mostly clean and bright, owner's stamp to half-title page. Part of the 'Cambridge Studies in Early Modern British History' series.

This study of the political attitudes of ordinary Londoners during the reign of Charles II examines not only the manifestations of public opinion - for example, riot and demonstration - but also the manner of its formation - religious experience, economic activity, and exposure to mass political propaganda. Professor Harris shows that the conventional view, that the Whigs enjoyed the support of the London masses and the Tories were essentially anti-populist as misleading. Both sides had public support during the exclusion crisis, and this division stemmed from fundamental religious tensions within London political culture, dating back to 1660 and before. Attractively illustrated with polemical contemporary engravings, London Crowds demonstrates clearly the value of bringing together both high and low activity into a truly integrated social history of politics, and sheds important new light not just on urban agitation but on the nature of late-Stuart party conflict.
