Synopsis : This new edition makes an important selection of Cobbett's writings available to scholars in the fields of history, economics, politics, literature and the history of ideas for the first time, and includes full annotation and a biographical and analytical introduction. William Cobbett (1763-1835) was a prolific writer, best known as the anti-Radical founder of Cobbett's Political Register which ran from 1802-35 and comprised of 88 volumes. As his views changed around 1804 he wrote more positively in the Radical interest, and was imprisoned for his attack on flogging in the army. He published the Parliamentary Debates (which later became incorporated into Hansard), a collection of critical writings on America, and numerous volumes of articles on economic and political events, agriculture, language and travel. While some of Cobbett's texts are available in print, these present the eccentric side of Cobbett and are of limited use to academics and historians.His most historically-significant texts, including the best of his early American journalism which made his name, and his pamphlets from 1816 which sold up to 70,000 copies each, have been unavailable since shortly after his death. Texts are fully reset and fully annotated with biographical and analytical volume introductions, and there is a comprehensive index.
