Politics

Hope, Valerie. My Lord Mayor: Eight Hundred Years of London’s Mayoralty. London: Weidenfeld and Nicolson, 1989. This was written to celebrate and commemorate 800 years of public servants holding the office of Lord Mayor of London. It’s an excellent stufy of the office of the mayor, the Livery Companies, the Court of Common Hall and the other elected officials who all figured so largely in the emergence and governance of mighty London. And yes, Dick Whittington was mentioned, but not his cat.

Owen, John B. The Eighteenth Century 1714-1815. Totowa: Rowman and Littlefield, 1975. Lots of politics here, if you have scenes in Parliament, or a politician as a character, you’ll find plenty in here to keep him busy.
