Dr Cannon studies the workings of the eighteenth-century constitution, concentrating on the years of acute crisis from 1782 to 1784. He examines the formation of the Fox-North coalition, its achievement of office in March 1783, and the manoeuvres by which it was eventually ousted. In doing so he throws light on several obscure questions, such as the reasons for Shelburne's unpopularity, the part played by William Pitt over the India Bill (based on hitherto unused manuscripts in the Bodleian Library), and the causes of Lord Temple's resignation in December 1783. Dr Cannon shows that these were critical years in the evolution of political parties, and contributes evidence towards an assessment of the careers of Lord North, Charles Fox and William Pitt.

This account of the short-lived and rather disastrous, Fox-North coalition govt provides a good and very detailed look at how the coalition came together and the fight for the India Bill that doomed the ministry. While the account is dated and the writing is reflective of late 1960's historiography, I found the level of detail to be worth the effort in getting through it. It did help that the book is short and focused just on the coalition ministry. However, you will need to have a basic understanding of late 18th century English politics as the author assumed his readers had this background.

But, it is worth the effort as this is the only detailed history of this period that have found.
