Re-reading the Constitution by James Vernon
Book DescriptionThis 1996 volume of essays is about something which (for many) does not exist and yet which remains central to our understanding of English politics, history and national identity - the constitution. As European integration and demands for constitutional reform have once again moved the constitution to the centre of contemporary politics, an impressive team of contributors re-examines aspects of the debates over the meaning of the constitution and 'public opinion' in the long nineteenth century, from a sedition trial in the 1790s to the enfranchisement of certain women in 1918. With essays engaging with the histories of law, medicine and even with history as a discipline, the book takes stock of the state of the cultural history of English politics, consolidating upon much of the most innovative work in recent years as well as suggesting ways of re-reading the traditional narratives of English political history.

Books By Author James Vernon
Distant Strangers, Paperback (July 2014)
What does it mean to live in the modern world? How different is that world from those that preceded it, and when did we become modern? This book argues that the world was made modern not by revolution, industrialization, or the Enlightenment.
Politics and the People, Paperback (June 2009)
An ambitious reinterpretation of nineteenth-century English politics using oral, visual and printed records.
Hunger, Hardback (November 2007)» View all books by James Vernon
Draws together social, cultural, and political history in a novel way, to show us how we came to have a moral, political, and social responsibility toward the hungry. This book reminds us how many perished from hunger in the empire and reveals how their history was intricately connected with the achievements of the welfare state in Britain.
