Beschreibung

This detailed case-study offers a penetrating analysis of the changing political culture in Cornwall up to and after the introduction of the 1832 electoral system. It spans a century in which the county's parliamentary over-representation and notorious political corruption was replaced by a politicised electorate for whom issues and principles were usually paramount. Several models of electoral behaviour are tested; in particular, the continuous political activism of Cornwall's farmers stands out. Despite remnants of the unreformed electoral system lingering into the mid-Victorian era, Cornwall developed a powerful Liberal tradition, built upon distinctive patterns of non-conformity; the Conservatives, split by dissension, saw their pre-reform ascendancy disappear.Professor EDWIN JAGGARD lectures in history at Edith Cowan University, Perth, Western Australia.

Pressestimmen

Valuable study... combines a thorough analysis of local Cornish politics with a precise view into the processes of electioneering during a period of far-reaching reform. PARLIAMENTARY HISTORY Valuable book...informative, detailed and historiographically savvy... Substantiates (arguments that) issues, principles, and popular candidates were often more decisive than traditional patronage and courruption in deciding electoral contests. CHOICE
