Textul de pe ultima copertă

The Second Reform Act of 1867 was a landmark in the history of British democracy. It doubled the electorate at a stroke, propelling the British state into the age of mass politics and creating for the first time a working–class predominance in the constituencies. This volume offers wide–ranging new approaches to the Second Reform Act and its world: both the political world it created and the intellectual world from which it emerged. It brings fresh perspectives from imperial history, Irish history, the history of childhood and the history of political thought, while showing how nationalists, colonialists, popular radicals and revolutionaries such as Karl Marx responded to the challenge and opportunity of reform.
