The Politics of Electoral Pressure

A Study in the History of Victorian Reform Agitation.

by Hamer, D. A.

This work studies the interactions of three phenomena of 19th-century British politics: the electoral system (developing under the impact of frequent electoral reform), key pressure groups including the Anti-Corn Law League, the Liberation Society, the National Education League, and the United Kingdom Alliance; and the impact on the governing Liberal Party.

Comments

 “…strategic studies do much more than merely illustrate the strategists' concerns. They also throw light upon the loyalty and discipline of the forces under their control and the general environment of the action. Such is the case with Hamer's new book…The Politics of Electoral Pressure is a valuable book…. ” - Professor D. C. Moore, Journal of Modern History.

Reviews: Journal of Modern History

“Its investigation of hundreds of different electoral interventions is a substantial, if necessarily somewhat repetitious, historical addition to the literature provided by political scientists.”

Reviews: Professor J.R. Vincent
