The age of urban democracy

£4.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This part of a series of mostly narrative-based, general accounts of English history from Anglo-Saxon times to the present, weaving together politics, society, economics, religion and forign affairs into a single whole.;This survey first appeared in 1979, as "England 1868-1914: the Age of Urban Democracy". It covers all aspects of the period in which English society acquired its modern shape - industrial rather than agricultural, urban rather than rural, middle class rather than aristocratic in the control of political power, and democratic in its institutions.;It deals with the period in three big chronological swathes (1868-1880; 1880-1901; 1901-1914), each section then looking at economic life, social life, town life, cultural life, government, domestic policy, and imperial and foreign policy. It is a textbook, helping students master a huge amount of material through its clear structure, sensible judgements and easy approachable style.;For this revised edition the footnotes and bibliographic material have been fully updated to take account of recent scholarship; the text itself is only lightly revised. The entire book has been reset in a larger and more reader-friendly format.
