about this item

It is undeniable that the Oxford and Cambridge Unions had an important role to play in the nineteenth-century British political culture. Despite that, or perhaps for that very reason, they have received very little scholarly attention as to their political activities. This study offers much-needed insight into the Union debating practices through which their members became knowledgeable of the parliamentary way of doing politics. More significantly, it uses the original Union records as primary research material to show that they also had unique political practices of their own. Presenting a detailed analysis of their debates, the book argues that the Unions should be appreciated as independent political arenas, not mere extensions of Westminster politics.
