not yet rated|write a review
Was George Grenville an arrogant pedant, the man who blundered into the Stamp Act, or was he the head of one of the most effective and efficient administrations of the early years of the reign of George III? In this comprehensive re-examination of the career and source materials, both primary and secondary, Rory T. Cornish provides the basis for a reassessment of George Grenville. The work begins with an extensive introductory essay that interprets Grenville's background, political career, and contribution to the development of eighteenth-century British politics. This is followed by a detailed chronology and fully annotated bibliography. As recent historical research has indicated, Grenville has often been underestimated. This present work will be an invaluable aid to scholars and research students interested in eighteenth-century British politics and the Anglo-American crisis initiated by the Grenville administration.
