(p.219) Conclusion
The Liberal Party in Rural England 1885-1910


Oxford University Press

This analysis of rural Liberalism may provide a greater understanding of the political allegiances in the years between the Third Reform Act and the First World War. The popularity of radical traditions with the mass rural electorate can also aid in the clarification of the changing nature of Liberal politics during the tumultuous years between Gladstone's resignation and the outbreak of the First World War. The focus of rural radicalism varies considerably from one constituency to another, and particularly between urban and rural divisions. The shape of Liberal politics in rural and semi-rural constituencies depended heavily on such local factors as religious and political traditions, proximity or non-proximity to industry, and the predominant type of farming performed in the area.
