Front Cover
Boydell & Brewer, 1985 - History - 692 pages
The subject of the Namier/Brooke volumes concerns a period when politics were dominated in turn by the war with France, the accession of george III, the governance of India and the revolt of the American colonies. The repercussions of those problems upon the House provide the main themes of the Introductory Survey. Largely written by John Brooke, it draws heavily on Namier's views on mid to late eighteenth century politics. The three volumes contain 1,966 biographical articles and 314 constituency articles.
