Summary
"In the late nineteenth century Britain was one of the most urbanised societies in the world, yet land reform remained an important element in its politics. Ian Packer explores this paradox through an examination of the Liberal Party's increasing interest in the English dimension of the land question." "Most historians have dismissed this phenomenon as a product of romantic views about the English countryside and Liberalism's failure to engage with the problems of urban society. In contrast, this book argues that English land reform was important to Liberals because it both expressed their deeply-held hostility to landowners and functioned as a variety of strategies to win electoral support and deal with pressing political issues." "Moreover, while Liberals did not always benefit from their association with the land question, it became a matter of crucial significance in 1909-14, when Lloyd George unlocked its potential as an election-winning asset and used it to form a bridge between traditional radicalism and the New Liberalism. The book thus sheds important new light on the vexed question of the decline of the Liberal Party."--BOOK JACKET
