Richard Brent argues that the Whig party in the `decade of reform' was dominated by a new generation of politicians: `liberal Anglicans', who welcomed the inclusion of both Protestant and Catholic nonconformists in the political nation. `The argument is clearly presented and supported with materials froma wide range of sources... a coherent and impressive book made all the more convincing by a steady and sensible refusal to push the arguments beyond the bounds of evidence or common sense.'
