The kings & queens of Britain by John Cannon( Book )

44 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The rich pageant of Britains history emerges nowhere more colorfully than in the story of its kings and queens. This new paperback offers an attractive and authoritative account of the British monarchy, tracing the crowns full history from Anglo-Saxon times to the present. Generously illustrated with maps, photos, paintings, and genealogies, it contains almost 600 entries that offer a wealth of information on the rulers of Britain, including their policies, personalities, key dates, and legacies. It also sheds light on such topics as the right of succession, coronations and marriages, regalia, the Tower of London, and, new to this edition, Westminster Abbey and St. Pauls Cathedral. Revised and fully updated to include recent events, such as the second marriage of Prince Charles, this edition also contains a topical introductory article on the changing role of the monarchy and its relevance in the 21st century. There is a useful glossary, a list of recommended further reading, and a new appendix of recommended web links that can be found on a regularly updated companion website
Aristocratic century : the peerage of eighteenth-century England by John Cannon( Book )

26 editions published between 1984 and 2011 in English and held by 739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the work of Butterfield and Namier in the 1930s, it has commonly been said that eighteenth-century England appears atomised, left with no overall interpretation. Subsequent work on religious differences and on party strife served to reinforce the image of a divided society, and in the last ten years historians of the poor and unprivileged have suggested that beneath the surface lurked substantial popular discontent. Professor Cannon uses his 1982 Wiles Lecture to offer a different interpretation - that the widespread acceptance of aristocratic values and aristocratic leadership gave a remarkable intellectual, political and social coherence to the century. He traces the recovery made by the aristocracy from its decade in 1649 when the House of Lords was abolished as useless and dangerous. After the Glorious Revolution of 1688, the peerage re-established its hold on government and society. Professor Cannon is forced to challenge some of the most cherished beliefs of English historiography - that Hanoverian society, at its top level, was an open elite, continually replenished by vigorous recruits from other groups and classes. He suggests that, on the contrary, in some respects the English peerage was more exclusive than many of its continental counterparts and that the openness was a myth which itself served a potent political purpose. Of the prospering burgeoisie, he argues that the remarkable thing was not their assertiveness but their long acquiescence in patrician rule, and he poses the paradox of a country increasingly dominated by a landed aristocracy giving birth to the first industrial revolution. His final chapter discusses the ideological under-pinning which made aristocratic supremacy acceptable for so long, and the emergence of those forces and ideals which were ultimately to replace it

Samuel Johnson and the politics of Hanoverian England by John Cannon( Book )

14 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a lively and readable reinterpretation of the Georgian political order. Samuel Johnson's life (1709-1784) spans most of the eighteenth century. His contacts in the literary and cultural, scholarly, and political worlds were wide, including Gibbon, Goldsmith, Fox, Burke, Reynolds, Adam Smith, and many others. This book uses Johnson's remarkable career as a point of entry into Hanoverian England. John Cannon explores major contemporary issues, such as education, the poor, capital punishment, the colonies, religious toleration, and Toryism. He challenges many assumptions about Johnson's own attitudes, and offers a substantial modification to the traditional picture of Johnson and the political world of the eighteenth century
