Description

Computing techniques are increasingly being used to examine afresh key historical events. This collection of papers shows how they have been applied to four important political and parliamentary events in nineteenth-century Britain; the hitherto little-studied 1835 Municipal Corporation Act, which proved a watershed in the development of political parties; the well-known repeal of the Corn Laws; the equally famous fight for Home Rule for Ireland; and the development of parliamentary collective responsibility for ministers of the Crown. It also describes and analyses the implications of a vast new database of unofficial late eighteenth-century division lists for the House of Commons.
