About the Book

Britain's voting arrangements prior to the 1832 Reform Act are almost unbelievable to us now. Only 12 percent of men (and no women) had the vote, a single person controlled a rotten borough that returned two Members of Parliament (one of whom was the Prime Minister), and voting was in public, with landlords evicting tenants who voted against their wishes. In The Struggle for Democracy, Roger Mason tells the story of how we got from then to now. All major reforms are covered, such as Catholic Emancipation, further Reform Acts, the end of the House of Lords veto, and of course votes for women. This fascinating history offers a complete insight into the way we have voted from the beginnings of parliament through to the future of democracy.
About the Author: Roger Mason is the author of 18 books and has studied the workings of Parliament for many years. He writes and delivers seminars for directors and company secretaries and regularly speaks at events across the country and abroad.
