Abstract:

An avowed political historian of the Namierite persuasion, Derek Jarrett correctly observes that Namier's structural approach to politics rested upon "questions about unconscious as well as conscious motives, about the myths and prejudices which ordinary people cherished and which politicians exploited" (p. 11). In this respect Jarrett contends that an examination of William Hogarth and his works provides a most useful point of departure for understanding the values and attitudes, the ideals and obsessions which shaped the behavior of people in eighteenth-century England. -- from http://www.jstor.org (March 14, 2014).
