Politics and Elections in Nineteenth-Century Liverpool

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This monograph provides a detailed account of one of England's most important cities at a crucial period in the development of popular democracy. It traces the sectarian conflicts, ethnic tensions and social adjustments of Liverpool as they affected, and indeed still affect, the city's politics. It addresses the historical anomaly of Liverpool's loyalty to the Conservative party; anomalous because the Liberals had a firm grip on power in every other great northern city of the period.
