The Whig revival, 1808-1830 by William Anthony Hay( Book )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Anthony Hay provides in this book a brilliant reassessment of British party politics in the first third of the Nineteenth Century. The transformation of the Whig party between 1808 and 1830 laid the foundations for the Whig-Liberal ascendancy that dominated British politics until 1886. On the basis of painstaking research Hay shows how and why the Whigs gained power in 1830. With their ranks thinning after the collapse of the Whig-dominated Talents Ministry in 1807, the party seemed doomed to obscurity. Byron famously quipped that "Nought's permanent among the human race/Except the Whigs not getting into place." Contrary to expectations, the whigs had rebuilt their support by 1830 through an alliance with provincial interest groups brokered by Henry Brougham. While Edmund Burke had crafted the original justification for party activity by the Rockingham Whigs, Brougham applied the concept practically and extended it beyond Parliament to the political nation as a whole. In doing so, he integrated the vibrant popular politics of the Hanoverian counties and boroughs into the struggle for power at Westminster. Hay makes clear how Brougham's appeals to provincial merchants, manufacturers, and religious Dissenters transformed a faction of aristocratic, metropolitan oriented Whigs into the dominant force of Victorian Britain
Lord Liverpool : a political life by William Anthony Hay( )

6 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Banks Jenkinson, 2nd Earl of Liverpool, was Britain's longest serving prime minister since William Pitt the Younger. Liverpool's tenure in office oversaw a series of seismic events including the War of 1812 with the United States, the endgame of the Napoleonic Wars and the Congress of Vienna, the Corn Laws, the Peterloo Massacre, and escalating contention over the issue of Catholic Emancipation. However, Liverpool's overall standing within British political history has been overshadowed by contemporaries such as Castlereagh and Canning, and his reputation and achievements were downplayed by the Reform period that followed. This new political biography explores Liverpool's career and puts his efforts at resisting change into context, bringing this period of transformation into sharp focus. It shows Liverpool as a defender of the eighteenth-century British constitution, documenting his efforts at adapting institutions to the challenges of war and then the very different post-1815 world. Shaped by eighteenth-century assumptions, Liverpool nonetheless laid the foundations for the nineteenth-century Britain that emerged from the Reform era. This book uses his career and outlook as a way of exploring the crucial transition from the Georgian to the Victorian era. WILLIAM ANTHONY HAY is Associate Professor of history at Mississippi State University and a fellow of the Royal Historical Society. -- Publisher description

Teaching World Religions A Report of FPRI's History Institute for Teachers by William Anthony Hay( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The growing demand for guidance on teaching about the world religions in U.S. high schools and colleges over the past few years prompted the Foreign Policy Research Institute (FPRI) to devote its seventh annual History Institute, April 2001, to exploring the topic. The institute brought together university faculty and 44 high school teachers from 16 states to discuss the best recent scholarship on world religions and how that scholarship can be used the classroom. FPRI has long recognized the key role that religion plays in international affairs. Recent headlines on terrorism and conflict in the Middle East underline the point. A world religion is one with a global following not restricted to members of a particular society, nation, or culture. By that definition, there are three world religions today: (1) Christianity; (2) Islam; and (3) Buddhism. The institute attendees did not question whether religious studies belonged in the curriculum but rather how it should be presented as a vital part of the humanities. The high school teachers agreed that studying about world religions is important to understanding so many other subjects in the curriculum and addresses fundamental questions that students ask regarding the meaning of life. The group concluded that developing an effective synthesis for the classroom remains the key challenge for teaching about world religions. (BT)

The American Encounter with Islam. Footnotes. Volume 8, Number 4 by William Anthony Hay( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

On May 3-4, 2003, the Foreign Policy Research Institute held its tenth History Institute for Teachers. Forty-two teachers from fourteen states participated in a weekend of lectures and seminars, featuring seven outstanding scholars. Although Muslims define themselves and the Christian West in terms of religion, Western countries view relations among themselves and with Islam in national terms. Understanding America's distinctive encounter with Islam is fundamental to understanding both the American and Islamic perspectives on the war on terrorism. Sessions included: (1) Islam and the West (Edward Peters); (2) Islam in America (Philip Jenkins); (3) Religion and the Arab-Israeli Conflict (Adam Garfinkle); (4) American Foreign Policy and Islam (Harvey Sicherman); (5) Political Islam (John Calvert); and (6) Mapping America's Middle East (Eric Davis.)

The Whig Revival, 1808- 830 by William Anthony Hay( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Between 1808 and 1830, the Whigs made a remarkable transition from opposition to office that highlights important trends in early Nineteenth-Century Britain. The Whig Revival examines how a coalition between provincial interest groups and the parliamentary party established them as a viable governing party by 1830. Where earlier studies have focused on the Whigs experience in government or liberal reform movements, this work examines their years in opposition and how the struggle for power broadened the political nation beyond metropolitan elites
