A very readable piece of popular history highlighting a key period in English history when many of the changes which we're taking place presaged our modern political and economic system. Most of it concentrates on the key role of Sir Robert Peel. One thing that hasn't changed is that self-interest seems the rule for most politicians. Also, if you don't know much about it, it's a horrific insight into the heartless attitudes at the time to the Irish potato famine and explains a lot about Irish attitudes since to the E nglish, particularly the landowners.
