The life of John Wesley : a brand from the burning by Roy Hattersley( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 563 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."

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 socialist way : social democracy in contemporary Britain( Book )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 97 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 Catholics : the Church and its people in Britain and Ireland, from the Reformation to the present day by Roy Hattersley( Book )

6 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout the three hundred years that followed the Act of Supremacy -- which, by making Henry VIII head of the Church, confirmed in law the breach with Rome -- English Catholics were prosecuted, persecuted and penalised for the public expression of their faith. Even after the passing of the emancipation acts Catholics were still the victims of institutionalised discrimination. The first book to tell the story of the Catholics in Britain in a single volume, The Catholics includes much previously unpublished information. It focuses on the lives, and sometimes deaths, of individual Catholics -- martyrs and apostates, priests and laymen, converts and recusants. It tells the story of the men and women who faced the dangers and difficulties of being what their enemies still call 'Papists'. It describes the laws which circumscribed their lives, the political tensions which influenced their position within an essentially Anglican nation and the changes in dogma and liturgy by which Rome increasingly alienated their Protestant neighbours -- and sometime even tested the loyalty of faithful Catholics. The survival of Catholicism in Britain is the triumph of more than simple faith. It is the victory of moral and spiritual unbending certainty. Catholicism survives because it does not compromise. It is a characteristic that excites admiration in even a hardened atheist
Goodbye to Yorkshire by Roy Hattersley( Book )

6 editions published between 1976 and 1991 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author was born in Yorkshire and spent his first thirty years in the county before leaving in 1964 to become the Member of Parliament for Sparkbrook. Yorkshire, he believes, is an idea as well as a place, representing as it does a set of particular values: the desire to compete and the need to win, a certainty about one's own virtues and scepticism about other people's convictions, a faith in the triumph of industryand the victory of thrift, aggression that gets men knocked down and pride that makes them stand up again. He here describes the places where he learnt the Yorkshire values, but this is not only about cities and rivers and towns - it is a tribute to great Yorkshire institutions
