Radical Politics in the North-East of England in the Later Eighteenth Century

Author: H.T. Dickinson
Paperback: 24 pages
Publisher: Durham County Local History Society (1979)
Dimensions: 14.5 x 21 x 0.2 cm

An analysis of the radical challenge to the existing political and social order that emerged in the decades from the 1760s to the 1790s.

By focusing on the North East of England, with its mixture of rural hinterland and urban centres, this pamphlet attempts to give an indication of the strengths and weaknesses of radicalism in the late eighteenth century. The author considers the impact of the Middlesex election case of John Wilkes, the American War of Independence and the French Revolution, and the activities of the supporters of the Reverend James Murray and the members of the Constitution Club of Newcastle.
