Summary

Summary

This edition consists of letters written by A.S. Rowntree, a Quaker member of the chocolate-manufacturing family, to his wife, M.K. Rowntree, when he was a Liberal MP for his home city of York. It reveals important information about the duties of backbench MPs and how they saw the world. Specifically, it expands upon how Quakers viewed politics, the problems of pacifists in World War I and how marriage fitted into the life of an early twentieth-century politician.
