Description - Politics in the Age of Fox, Pitt and Liverpool by John W. Derry

For many people the late eighteenth century was a period of political corruption, with the political world waiting for the triumph of reform. In this study, now in a revised edition, John Derry shows that the traditional political system was more remarkable for its resilience than for its defects, and that it succeeded to an astonishing extent in meeting the challenges of war, the threat from the French Revolution, and the problems caused by unprecedented social and economic change. A vigorous narrative is combined with analysis of the assumptions on which the practice of politics was based and the fashion in which politicians responded to the demands made of them.
