Description

The collected works of Walter Bagehot – 15 vols. Walter Bagehot (1826-1877), the notable Victorian journalist, economist, and historian, was a prolific author of both books and magazine articles. Along with Matthew Arnold, he was one of the most lucid and discerning critics of that time. He contributed to many journal articles, notably to the Prospective and National Reviews and The Economist, with a lively and witty style. Widely considered to be a great authority on banking and finance, Bagehot was consulted by Chancellors of the Exchequer of both parties. His outlook, although never hostile to the working classes or trade unions, was openly sympathetic to the capitalist employers – a group that had never before such a brilliant spokesman. His most enduring publications, The English Constitution and Lombard Street are both republished here, as are his Letters on the French Coup D’Etat, Literary Studies, and Physics and Politics.
