The early nineteenth century was marked by public disorder, governmental repression and correction. It was a period of revolution, reaction and reform.

This pamphlet focuses on three key issues:

* the factors which combined to produce the turmoil and uprisings of 1812-21 and the severity with which they were put down

* the validity of the distinction between 'repressive' and 'liberal' phases of the administration

* the ability of Lord Liverpool as Prime Minister.
