Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the ideological underpinnings of the riots and rioters. The discussions in this chapter explain clearly what exactly stunned Holland, Folkestone, More, and Windham. This is done through careful observations of the tensions that arose in the early nineteenth century, from domestic and international politics to the contradictions between the theatre as a place of performance and a source of profits.

Keywords: international politics; riots; rioters; Holland; Folkestone; More; Windham; constitution; theatre
