King George III and the Politicians: The Ford Lectures Delivered in The University of Oxford 1951-2

Richard Pares

Abstract

This study of British politics from 1760 to 1832 deals with the reasons why people went into politics, the functions of party and patronage and the balance of power between King, Lords, and Commons. George III is the central figure of the work and the author discusses the King's conception of his mission and his struggles with ‘that hydra faction’.

Keywords: British politics, 1760, power, King, Lords, Commons, George III
