Both parliament and press - newspapers especially - experienced significant transformation and growth between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries - a dynamic process that helped alter the nation's socio-political fabric and contributed vitally to the progressive liberalisation of national political life. Traditionally historians have tended to treat the evolution of these institutions separately, or view areas of engagement in adversarial terms, emphasising the pervasive role of printed polemics during the major constitutional battles of the period. By contrast, this volume views relations between parliament and the press as interactive and symbiotic. Drawing on a variety of archival sources, the essays show how this positive interaction enhanced political awareness, countrywide, broadened the populist dimension of parliamentary politics, altered traditional models of patronage and authority, and expanded the self-reforming capacity of the British state. The papers also link these themes with the important concept of the 'public sphere'; that social space between the private world and the state in which the urban bourgeoisie gradually expanded their political identity, ideology, and participation.
