Description - The Governing of Britain, 1688-1848 by Peter Jupp

Focusing on the institutions and players of central and local government during an era of great transformation, Peter Jupp examines the cohesive nature of the British state, and how Britain was governed between 1688 and 1848. Divided into two parts, bisected by the accession of George III in 1760, this study: * examines the changes to the framework and function of executive government * presents an analysis of its achievements, the composition and functions of Parliament * explores Parliament's role in government * looks at the interaction between the executive, Parliament and the public. Providing new insights into the formulation of notions and traditions of legislation, the public sphere and popular politics, The Governing of Britain is an essential guide to a formative era in political life.
