OverviewThis course examines the relationship between the exercise of political power and the development of political parties in Britain in the period c.1800-c.1945. The lectures consider the interplay between ideological and socio-economic forces, organisational structures, leadership and political mobilisation. Primary sources and key contributions to the critical debates on these themes provide the reading material for the course, in which the teaching is in the form of lectures and seminar sessions.
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
