Democracy and the State: 1830 -1945 Summary


This book charts the progress of the United Kingdom towards a modern democracy and looks at the changing role of the state from 1830 to 1945. It examines the electoral reform acts introduced between 1832 and 1918; the changing balance of power between monarchy, government, the House of Lords and the civil service; the development of the state from a laissez-faire to an interventionist one; the growth of corporatism; and welfare provision. The author considers the key ideas and thinking behind these developments and offers different perspectives on events. He also highlights the main debates between historians about the politics of the period. Democracy and the State contains a selection of primary sources, including a document case study and questions at the end of each chapter.
