American labor by Henry Pelling( Book )

54 editions published between 1960 and 1985 in 6 languages and held by 1,512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This brief volume surveys the history of organized labor in America with a concise clarity that comes from a perceptive knowledge of the subject. Mr. Pelling, an English scholar in the fields of labor economics and politics, has limited himself to basic developments and broad interpretations, but he has slighted nothing of historic value. Thus in his description of labor in colonial times he points out that conditions in seventeenth-century America had severely restricted even the free laborer, since he had to function under English common and statute law-laws and practices "based on the needs of a hierarchical society and mercantilistic economy." From that time to the present, Pelling makes clear, the American worker had to accept the political and economic limitations of his minority status, first in a predominantly agricultural society and now in an economy in which the white-collar workers outnumber the blue."--Http:// (August 16, 2011)

Winston Churchill by Henry Pelling( Book )

38 editions published between 1974 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 1,311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Biografi om Churchill - hvilket samtidig ikke kan undgå at være en beskrivelse af Englands historie gennem en menneskealder, og af engelsk militærhistorie og krigshistorie i både Boerkrigen, 1. Verdenskrig og 2. Verdenskrig. Winston Spencer Churchill, 1874-1965, engelsk soldat, krigskorrespondent, politiker, statsmand, journalist, forfatter, historiker, maler, etc, manden der reddede England - og dermed hele den Vestlige verden under 2. Verdenskrig - en skildring af hans enestående, eventyrlige liv, levnedsløb og militære og politiske karriere. Churchill er på en måde "larger than life" og der er skrevet så umådeligt meget om ham - og af ham - bogen her fra 1974 er skrevet af en engelsk historiker og hører til de absolut bedre, den beskriver Churchills liv, og søger at skildre både den offentlige og den mere private mand, med alle hans (store) fejl og mangler og mindre heldige karakteregenskaber, men også de utroligt mange gode og positive sider "of the man who emerged from the wilderness to become one of the greatesr national leaders of all time, and who virtually saved England and the Free World as a nation from the evils of Hitler and nazism"

The labour governments, 1945-51 by Henry Pelling( Book )

23 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, by the author of the best-seller 'Winston Churchill' , is a concise reassessment of the first postwar British Governments based upon original sources - a task not previously attempted by any scholar. While sympathetic to Labour's aims in the 1945 general election campaign - which itself receives fresh treatment - Henry Pelling exposes areas of difficulty and weakness in the Government's strategy and uncovers the doubts and hesitations of its leaders. Much of the evidence comes from official papers recently released to the Public Record Office; but the private papers of Attlee, Morrison, Bevin and Dalton, among others, have been drawn upon to add details to the story. For the first time, too, there is a study of the importance of Marshall Aid, as well as of the friction that is occassioned behind-the-scenes with the Truman Administration and the US Congress. Highly readable, this book makes a major contribution to recent history and to a better understanding of the present political and international situation

The Working class in modern British history : essays in honour of Henry Pelling by J. M Winter( Book )

15 editions published between 1983 and 2008 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The thirteen essays in this book reflect the dual character of writing about the history of the British working class. The first section focuses on the outlook, organization, and policies of the Labour movement. The second section is concerned with central aspects of the social history of the working class. Together, these essays provide striking evidence of the ways in which the experience of class has pervaded virtually every corner of this nation's public life. They also show that the mixed political record of organized Labour, its hesitations and failures as well as its struggles and successes, cannot be understood without a full appreciation of the collective and individual lives of working people outside the political arena

Churchill's peacetime ministry, 1951-55 by Henry Pelling( Book )

The first study of the Churchill government of 1951-55 based on the Prime Minister's political papers (including his correspondence with President Eisenhower) and diaries and letters of Eden, Butler and other ministers. A picture emerges, not of a Government dominated by Churchill as in wartime, but of many sharp disagreements about foreign and domestic policy. But in spite of Churchill's stroke in 1953 and Eden's serious illness they emerged to win major diplomatic successes. Meanwhile Butler and Macmillan both attained leadership status
