Sir Robert Peel : the life and legacy by Richard A Gaunt( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yet Peel's seemingly peerless reputation has never been secure. Repeal of the Corn Laws split his party; his Teelite' supporters joined the Liberals and the Conservatives remained in opposition for thirty years. His historical legacy is also troubled: was he a flexible and pragmatic Conservative moderniser or a rigid evangelistic apostle of Gladstonian free-trade liberalism, and not really a Conservative?
Unrepentant Tory : political selections from the diaries of the Fourth Duke of Newcastle-under-Lyne, 1827-38 by Henry Pelham Fiennes Pelham Clinton Newcastle( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The diaries of the fourth duke of Newcastle-under-Lyne (1785-1851) provide an unrivalled insight into the politics of the 'age of reform', during the late-1820s and 1830s, from the perspective of a prominent political critic. Newcastle was a well known defender of the constitutional status quo and used his position in the house of lords, his family's historic electoral influence and personal contacts with the leading royal and political figures of the day to argue the case against change. He was also a leading participant in ultra-tory parliamentary groups such as the 'king's friends' and the 'country party'

From Pitt to Peel : conservative politics in the Age of Reform by Richard A Gaunt( Book )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in Undetermined and English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The age of Tory reform, especially the period following the Napoleonic wars, is pivotal in British political history. Following the savage repression of radical and popular protest culminating in the 'Peterloo massacre' of 1819, the Tory party turned decisively towards modern 'one-nation' conservatism later set out by Sir Robert Peel in his 'Tamworth Manifesto'. A radical swing from blind defence of the existing order to moderate, practical reform affected most areas of policy and proceeded apace throughout the 1820s. In step with industrial and commercial progress, railway and canal expansion, came a flowering of economics, supported by banking reform. There was also ground-breaking reform of the law and legal system, persistent struggles over the reform of the Corn Laws and, in religion, the established church's eventual acceptance of Catholic Emancipation. In foreign policy, Castlereagh's Congress System was replaced by the masterful Canning's policy of supporting liberal regimes in Latin America - an early exercise in British 'informal empire'. The Conservative government left office before the great Reform Act of 1832 but conservative modernisation continued under Peel's shadow, culminating in Corn Law repeal in 1846. This is an essential textbook for all students of nineteenth-century British political history, the Conservative Party and modern Conservatism, and includes themes of striking contemporary relevance
