Opis: Politics Finance And The People - Earl Reitan, E Reitan

In December 1779, failure in the American War unleashed a political and popular movement in Britain called 'economical reform'. It began as a political struggle between the Crown and the Opposition parties, which were supported by a powerful surge of public opinion. The initial objective of the Opposition was to reduce 'the influence of the Crown' - the honours, patronage, contracts and other benefits used the the King and his ministers to strengthen their political support in Parliament and elections. In midcourse, economical reform shifted to an emphasis on better management of the finances - improved collection of the revenue, recovering balances held by offices of tax collection and expenditure, reform of accounts and audit, abolition of sincecures and fees, and establishment of a systematic process of debt reduction. The investigations and reforms of the 1780s were the crucial first step in the long-term reform of the administrative structure. 'Reitan writes with great clarity and makes accessible to students as well as teachers a potentially obscure and dry subject. He rightly identifies it as central to the political debates of the time, which involved not just the high political elite, but also parts of the wider public. As a sharply focused, well-researched, and thoughtful account of a key period of economical reform, this book can be commended to a wide readership.' - Stephen Conway, American Historical Review 'Reitan's analysis is cogent and his mastery of the sources enviable. Future historians will be in his debt. This book is well furnished with all appropriate scholarly apparatus, including a most useful bibliography, and the author places it firmly in the context of other relevant historical writing from the late seventeenth century to the Victorian era. It deserves to be in the library of every student of the period.' - Roger Hainsworth, H-Albion 'For those concerned with the working of Commons' committees and the control of public expenditure, this is a valuable reference tool.' -- Valerie Cromwell, Parliaments, Estates and RepresentationPreface Introduction The Foundations, 1760-70 The Rise of Economical Reform, 1770-79 The Crown, the Parties and the People, 1780 Lord North, 1780-82 The Rockingham Ministry, 1782 The Shelburne Ministry, 1782-3 The Coalition Ministry, 1783 William Pitt and Fiscal Stability, 1784-92 William Pitt and Economical Reform, 1784-88 Afterword Bibliography
