Product Description
Charles James Fox, the standard bearer of the reform Whig opposition in the late eighteenth century, was among the most colorful politicians of his era and perhaps its most arresting orator. Despite a career marked by shifting alliances and misadventures, Fox is best known for his advocacy of the Libel Bill, which is a milestone in the history of English law; for his support of Catholic emancipation and the abolition of slavery, measures that became law after his death; and for his dedication to the rights of the common man. This is the first comprehensive bibliography of Fox, the "man of the people," and it provides a guide to the manuscript and archival sources as well as his own writings and the extensive literature on his life and career. The volume is augmented by a biographical essay, chronology, and author and subject indexes. ... Read more

Product Description
Charles James Fox was one of the most colorful figures in eighteenth-century politics.Notorious for the excesses of his private life, he was at the same time one of the leading politicians of his generation, dominating the Whig party and polite society.As the political rival of Pitt the Younger and the intellectual rival of Edmund Burke, his views on the major issues of the day--the American War of Independence, the French Revolution, parliamentary reform--formed the character of Whiggery in his own time and for years to come.Fox's historical reputation has been hotly disputed. Some have hailed him as one of the founding fathers of Radicalism, others have dismissed him as an irritating and irresponsible impediment to the statesmanship of Pitt.Mitchell's scholarly biography shows that in many ways Fox was a politician through circumstance, not kinship and friendship which to an astonishing degree dictated Fox's politics, and offers striking new assessments of Whiggery and its most potent personality.This penetrating and readable study reveals the man and his mind, and sets Fox firmly within the political and social context of the late eighteenth century. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars First-class treatment of the subject
After finishing this book, it is hard to imagine there can be anything left to say about Charles James Fox. The familiar picture emerges of a politician who didn't have the skills or temperament of Pitt the Youngerand hence was in opposition for most of his career. Yet Mitchell also makestwo very interesting observations. First, Fox often preferred his privatesocial life to politics. Did he, in fact, spend more time at the race trackand at his London club than at the House of Commons? Secondly, Fox was lessof a radical than most of his contemporaries thought. He was not, forinstance, especially keen on far-reaching parliamentary reform. A bigthumbs-up for this biography, not least for quoting verbatim from thestrong language of certain original sources! ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
Charles James Fox is among the most colourful adornments of the eighteenth century and of British political history. Of his considerable inheritance from his father he had dissipated much at Newmarket and at the gambling tables by the early 1770s, at the same time forfeiting his post as one of Lord North's junior ministers through his growing hostility to George III and the King's oppressive measures against the American colonists. He continued his opposition to the transatlantic war into the 1780s, establishing his reputation as a brilliant extempore speaker at Westminster when not running the faro bank at Brook's club in St James's. The resignation of North in 1782 saw Fox in office once more, but his own miscalculations and the bitter enmity of the King ensured that he was soon replaced by his great rival, William Pitt the Younger. He was soon to remain in opposition until the last six months of his life, overplaying his hand when calling for a Regency at the time of the King's temporary insanity, overplaying it again with his apparently uncritical support for the French Revolution, but always unswerving in his condemnation of slavery and support of religious freedom.Stanley Ayling's is a lively portrait of the man whom Horace Walpole calles 'the phenomenon of the age', with his twin genius for political misjudgment and personal friendship. ...

Editorial Review

Product Description
For many, the late 18th century was a period of political corruption awaiting for the triumph of reform. In this lucidly written study, now in a revised edition, John Derry shows that the traditional political system was more remarkable for its resilience than for its defects and that it succeeded to an astonishing extent in meeting the challenges of war, the threat from the French Revolution, and the problems caused by unprecedented social and economic change. A vigorous narrative is combined with insightful analysis of the assumptions on which the practice of politics was based and the fashion in which politicians responded to the demands made of them. ...
