 Creating Club Regulation

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the Victorian regulatory state. The key features of the wider administrative culture were congruent with the ideology of cooperative, consensual regulation practised by the inspectorates for much of the 20th century. This wider administrative culture was rooted in the system of club government that dominated metropolitan politics in Britain. This was the final important mechanism in embedding Victorian settlement for the first 60 to 70 years of the 20th century.

Keywords: Victorian regulatory state; club government; Britain; regulation
