(p.1) Introduction
Politics and the Nation

Bob Harris

Oxford University Press

This book reconstructs the politics and political culture of Britain in the mid-18th century in a way which helps to highlight the main issues, feelings, ideologies, and realities which gave distinctive form and shape to them. It provides a fuller, more rounded picture of political life in this period, and in so doing challenges long-standing preconceptions about it. Topics include national politics and patriotism in England and Wales, foreign affairs and Britain's war with France, national revival and Jacobitism, the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745, patriotism in Ireland, trade and commerce, political stability, and the campaign for moral reform.

Keywords:   Britain, politics, political culture, political stability, patriotism, national revival, moral reform, commerce, France, Jacobite Rebellion
