 About the Book 

Through this elegant, acerbic trio of essays--on seventeenth-century parliamentarian John Pym, Oliver Cromwell, and William Pitt the Elder--the influential historian Goldwin Smith takes digs at the politicians and parties of the 1860s. Issues include Ireland, martial law, imperialism, Anglo-American relations, suffrage, the Anglican Church, aristocracy, revolution, and reaction.
