This paper discusses the Corn Laws within the context of late 18th and early 19th-century British history. It explores why these laws were of vital importance in determining who in society held power over others. The paper argues that the Corn Laws of 1815 should have been repealed because they tended to benefit the landed and the wealthy over the poor and they were simply a rearguard action to try to prevent the inevitable changes that would accompany urbanization and industrialization.
