About the book:

Along with a thorough discussion of British, French, and American democracy and 19th century land acts, the author also discusses aspects of religious liberty and democracy throughout the world. The work covers American Democracy, reform, attacks on property, democracy as an inevitable fact, Upper Chambers, taxation and its causes, proposals for reforming the House of Lords, Mormonism, religious liberty, Catholicism and democracy in Ireland, Socialism, working practices, emancipation, and more, William Edward Hartpole Lecky (1838-1903) was an Irish historian, born near Dublin, and educated at Trinity College, Dublin. He won recognition with History of the Rise and Influence of Rationalism in Europe (1865) and History of European Morals from Augustus to Charlemagne (1869), in which he considered the development, dissemination, and decline of the moral and theological tenets of the Christian religion, and he later wrote History of England in the Eighteenth Century (8 vol., 1878-90). In 1895 he was elected to Parliament as a Liberal Unionist serving until 1897, when he was made a privy councilor. Lecky actively advocated liberal reforms in Ireland but opposed home rule. In 1902 he was named one of the first members of the British Academy, founded that year, and received the Order of Merit.
