Description - Democratisation in Britain by John Garrard
Much more than just a conventional history of franchise reform, this book explores the process whereby British politics was democratized and tries to account for its relative success. Britain is set within the context of successive waves of democratisation which have been in progress internationally since 1800. The author examines the role of British political elites, and the strength and character of civil society amongst the social groups included from 1832 onwards. He also analyzes the democratization of electoral behaviour.
