Bourgeois Liberty and the Politics of Fear

Marc Mulholland

Oxford University Press

Holy Alliance Europe, post-Napoleon, was fearful of parliamentary innovation, and paid a price for this in downgrading war-making capacity and commercial development. Britain and the US were seen as impressively commercial constitutionalisms, but sui generis models that could not easily be exported. Liberalism and Carlism in Spain, and ‘Bourgeois Monarchy’ in France are discussed. François Guizot's work in defining the ‘bourgeoisie’ as a political agent is highlighted.

Keywords:   François Guizot, Holy Alliance, Carlism, bourgeoisie
