Partisan Politics

Linked to new research on 18th-century middle orders, this book looks deep into small-town society. It finds these to be places difficult to govern, split by economic structure and divided by religion. Each was forced to seek consensus and realignment. This work presents a radical new approach to the study of early modern politics and towns.
