In spite of renewed interest in the repeal of the Corn Laws (1846), the original source material surrounding the repeal legislation has remained difficult to find for researchers, particularly those outside Britain. This volume offers easy access to key Parliamentary documents (eg., the speeches of Richard Cobden, Charles Villiers and others, and Peel's repeal legislation), pamphlets and speeches of the Anti-Corn Law League, and a number of contemporary documents on the anticipated effects of repeal by Torrens, McCulloch, Porter, Pennington, and others. As well as its interest for political scientists, economists and historians, the volume serves as a reader for both undergraduate and graduate courses in political economy.
