Summary
"Employing an innovative cultural-historical approach, James Gregory provides a wide-reaching yet detailed overview of the concept of mercy in modern Britain, spanning over two centuries. Split into 3 main parts, the first explores mercy's religious and philosophical aspects; the second, at the royal acts of mercy from the Hanoverian accession to Victoria's death; and the third, case studies of large-scale mobilization of mercy discourses in Britain, Europe, and the US"-- Provided by publisher.
