This chapter discusses political reform through an examination of transatlantic liberal ideas about public opinion, political participation, and the party system. Liberal men of letters demonstrated an unwavering belief in politics by continuing their involvement in public life, offering sharp postbellum criticisms and expressing the same sense of duty that prompted their earlier attacks on slavery.
