Revolutionary empire : the rise of the English-speaking empires from the fifteenth century to the 1780s by Angus Calder( Book )

22 editions published between 1981 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 963 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Revolutionary empire' is a bold term which may be taken in various senses. Like the Roman and Arab before it, but on a grander scale, the British Empire was a powerful force in drawing peoples out of their separate existences, pulling the world together into one jarring and explosive whole. Its expansion had transforming effects on Britain itself, and through it on Europe. How much it altered the world outside, or altered it for the better, is disputable. If it destroyed many old, worm-eaten things, it reinvigorated others, partly by rousing so much resentment against Europe and all its ways, and later on by patronizing conservatism in its colonies as a safeguard against revolt. Today the Third World is asking whether imperialism, British in particular, did more to pull it forward or to push it back. -- London Review of Books -- http://www.lrb.co.uk/

Selected poems by Robert Louis Stevenson( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Far more than in his famous novels, it was in verse that Robert Louis Stevenson felt able to give direct expression to his deepest feelings about friendship, love, and nostalgia. Fascinated by a wide variety of verse techniques, Stevenson produced superb work in styles ranging from folk ballads to witty conversational offerings for his friends. Pieces using the stanza form and dialect of Robert Burns rank among the most attractive poetry in the Scots tradition. Also featured here are many uncollected poems, substantial extracts from the published collections, and the complete A Child's Garden of Verses, an extraordinarily evocative picture of childhood loneliness, visions, and fears

Sword of honour by Evelyn Waugh( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fictionalising his experience of service during the Second World War, Evelyn Waugh's Sword of Honour is the complete one-volume edition of his masterful trilogy, edited with an introduction by Angus Calder in Penguin Modern Classics. Waugh's own unhappy experience of being a soldier is superbly re-enacted in this story of Guy Crouchback, a Catholic and a gentleman, commissioned into the Royal Corps of Halberdiers during the war years 1939-45. High comedy - in the company of Brigadier Ritchie-Hook or the denizens of Bellamy's Club - is only part of the shambles of Crouchback's war. When action comes in Crete and in Yugoslavia, he discovers not heroism, but humanity. Sword of Honour combines three volumes: Officers and Gentlemen, Men at Arms and Unconditional Surrender, which were originally published separately. Extensively revised by Waugh, they were published as the one-volume Sword of Honour in 1965, in the form in which Waugh himself wished them to be read
