About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1903, this two-volume work examines the changes in Parliamentary representation in England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland from the time that the House of Commons in England began to have a continuous existence until the Reform Act of 1832. Volume Two focuses on the representation of Scotland and Ireland and issues such as the disenfranchisement and re-enfranchisement of the Roman Catholic population. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history of British government and popular representation.
