    This study explores three aspects of political life in Radnorshire during the 'long' 19th century, from the mid 1790s to 1914: the gentry-dominated politics of the first two-thirds of the century; the development of party politics after 1868; and the politics of popular protest. As well as local issues, the book covers local engagement in wider political debates such as the Corn Laws, the Disestablishment of the Church in Wales, Home Rule for Ireland and electoral reform.
