Richard Brent argues that the Whig party in the `decade of reform' was dominated by a new generation of politicians: `liberal Anglicans', who welcomed the inclusion of both Protestant and Catholic nonconformists in the political nation. `The argument is clearly presented and supported with materials froma wide range of sources... a coherent and impressive book made all the more convincing by a steady and sensible refusal to push the arguments beyond the bounds of evidence or common sense.' Theo Hoppen, Times Literary Supplement

Richard Brent

'a wonderfully sensible and coherent account ... an impressive book' Theo Hoppen, Times Educational Supplement 'The argument is clearly presented and supported with materials from a wide range of sources' 'a coherent and impressive book made all the more convincing by a steady and sensible refusal to push the arguments beyond the bounds of evidence or common sense.' Theo Hoppen, Times Literary Supplement 'he presents a persuasive new interpretation of the Whig ministries of the 1830s ... The argument is presented clearly and lucidly and, occasionally, with wit.' Stephen Taylor, Jesus College, Cambridge. Journal of Ecclesiastical Studies 'Richard Brent's meticulous scholarship will undoubtedly stand the test of time as an account of Whig religion and its importance in the development of nineteenth-century English liberalism. Brent's study adds enormously to our understanding of Whiggery.' Ian D. C. Newbould, Universiy of Lethbridge. Parliamentary History 'an important contribution ... well written and closely argued' Teaching History
