Recent years have seen a revival of historical interest into political corruption. Questions range from finding out what, at times, constituted corruption and when, how and why assumptions of correct public behaviour changed. In this special issue, authors investigate the occurrence of corruption and changing attitudes towards it, in Germany, the Netherlands, France and Great Britain in the long nineteenth century. Scandals of corruption are centred around the hypothesis that modernisation (bureaucratisation, democratisation and industrialisation) led to change in these countries and to a shift from early modern plurality of values to modern clashing political ideologies. Although some “old” practices undoubtedly remained, it turns out that the hypothesis largely holds true.
