The socialist way social democracy in contemporary Britain by Roy Hattersley ( )
8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 2010, the Labour Party of Great Britain suffered its worst General Election defeat since the 1930s (with one exception), bringing to an end thirteen years of New Labour government. Since then, the debate over both the legacy of New Labour and the future direction of the party has been widespread, yet so far there has been little consideration from a social democratic perspective. The chapters in this book cover a wide range of issues and provide new perspectives in the areas of economic, social and foreign policy with a central focus on the defense of the state. The chapters on the economy put forward a strategy for economic growth through industrial democracy and collective ownership, whilst in terms of social policy a more radical agenda than New Labour's is advocated, underpinned by stronger notions of social justice, equality and welfare rights. In the context of growing nationalist sentiments and calls for Scottish independence, this book sets out the importance of central state activity, the promotion of a public service ethos and civil liberties and a social democratic approach to the increasingly important issue of national identity. Finally, it sets out an alternative agenda on foreign and defense policy including the promotion of international development and human rights and a reformed Europe. Containing high-profile contributions from journalists, academics, policy-makers and think tanks, The Socialist Way provides new directions for electoral success and argues that there is not a trade-off between power and principle."--Publisher's website

The life of John Wesley : a brand from the burning by Roy Hattersley ( Book )
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Roy Hattersley follows Wesley's spiritual journey, tracing his constant, often agonizing attempts to define the nature of virtue as well as the path to sanctity. The story of Wesley's theological progress is vastly enriched by this revealing portrait of his complex personality. A genuine scholar, Wesley published more work than any other author of the eighteenth century. He possessed phenomenal energy, traveling huge distances to preach and proselytize. Wesley practiced, as Hattersley writes, "every form of personal discipline (diet, exercise, carefully planned day) except emotional restraint." This candid account of Wesley's relationships with women - falling desperately in love three times in his life, each time failing to make his intentions clear, and eventually ending up in a disastrous marriage - brings to life Wesley's human side, largely ignored in previous, reverential biographies."

Fifty years on : a prejudiced history of Britain since the war by Roy Hattersley ( Book )
8 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This history of Britain since the war chronicles the main shifts in ideas and attitudes, changes in social structure and industrial performance and the influence of world events on Britain's economic prospects and international status. Examining how Britain has changed in the past half-century, it is written as a narrative in, more or less, chronological order. It is the anatomy of a journey that has taken the country from a post-war concensus on welfare to a new belief in individual enterprise

The Devonshires : the story of a family and a nation by Roy Hattersley ( Book )
5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From 1381 - when Sir John Cavendish, Lord Chief Justice of England, was killed during the Peasant's Revolt - to 1906, when the Duke of Devonshire's resignation brought down the Tory government: the family's fortunes (and misfortunes) mirrored the life of the nation. For this new history, Roy Hattersley has been given unique access to the archives, based at Chatsworth, the family seat. Hattersley gathers the dynasty in one place: an astonishing accumulation of scientists, soldiers, patrons, politicians, house builders, racehorse breeders, philanderers, and powerful women
