(p.255) Conclusion
Politics and Society in Great Yarmouth 1660–1722


Oxford University Press

The volume of work currently being produced on late Stuart and early Hanoverian politics reflects the growing importance which has been attached to the period. Of late, even the national press has sought to re-evaluate the importance of the age, prompted by the tricentenary of the Glorious Revolution to examine the responsiveness of the constitution to modern times. In contrast, academic interest has centred on themes of great significance for the history of 18th-century England, most notably the consolidation of parliamentary sovereignty, the expansion of the state apparatus, and the country's response to the financial and commercial revolutions. The centrality of the Yarmouth assembly in this work simply reflects its crucial role in local politics. The early modern corporation has seldom been depicted as a dynamic institution.
