Summary

Originally published in 1966, this book examines the struggle between the whig factions and the crown during a period of George III's reign. During the short period, the destinites of the nation were determined and the work of the Revolution nullified; never before had the opponents of personal government been given such a favourable opportunity to thwart the execution of the royal schemes, and yet they failed hopeleslly. Lord Chatham and the Whig Opposition includes chapters covering the formation of Chatham's administration, the rise and fall of the opposition, and its downfall.
