About the book:

This description of British politics from 1760 to 1832 deals with the reasons why people went into politics, the functions of party and patronage, and the balance of power between King, Lords and Commons. George III is the central figure of the work and the author discusses the King's conception of his mission and his struggles with "that hydra faction". The appointment and dismissal of ministries and the King's relations with the Cabinet are considered in more detail. The book concludes with some suggestions about the termination of the conflict and the development of a new order of things. This book was first published in 1953 and is being made available after 10 years out of print.
