Omtale: Government and Community in the English Provinces, 1700-1870
In this bold and original study, David Eastwood offers a reinterpretation of politics and public life in provincial England. He explores the ways in which power was exercised, and reconstructs the social and cultural foundations of political authority in provincial England. Professor Eastwood demonstrates the crucial role played by local elites in policy-making, and shows how English public institutions and political culture can only be understood in terms of the long-run development of the English state.
