Regency Crisis and the Whigs 1788 - 9 by John W. Derry

Book Description

The greatest divergence of opinion in the three-month controversy over the Regency in 1788-9 was within the opposition party itself. Dr Derry shows that this political crisis was the first stage in the break-up of the old Whig party, which was finally precipitated by the disputes over the French Revolution. His book is a study of the effects of George III's madness upon Fox, Burke and the Whigs. Dr Derry sketches in the general political background, giving character studies of Pitt and Fox. He discusses the constitutional problems of a Regency and the medical diagnoses of the King's doctors, a major factor governing political conduct since so much depended on the condition of the King.

Politics in the Age of Fox, Pitt and Liverpool by John W. Derry Politics in the Age of Fox, Pitt and Liverpool, Paperback (March 2001)

In this study, John Derry shows that the late 18th-century political system, known for its corruption, was more remarkable for its resilience than for its defects. He argues that it succeeded in meeting the challenges placed on it, in a time of war, revolution and major social change.
