Nineteenth-century Britain a very short introduction by Christopher Harvie ( )
6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Nineteenth-century Britain is a sharp but subtle account of remarkable economic and social change - and an even more remarkable political stability. Britain in 1789 was overwhelmingly rural, agrarian, multilingual, and almost half Celtic. By 1914, when it faced its greatest test since the defeat of Napoleon, it was largely urban and English. Christopher Harvie and H.C.G. Matthew show the forces behind Britain's rise to its imperial zenith, and the continuing tensions within the nations and classes of the 'union state'."--BOOK JACKET

The rise of regional Europe by Christopher Harvie ( Book )
12 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With the acceleration of European integration, the traditional defence-based nation-states are under threat. The steady transfer of power in mainland Europe to new, powerful regional authorities has started to build up new forms of intra-European integration. The author explores both the good and bad aspects of the present European situation, and shows how setting these in the context of cultural, economic and political history dramatically alters the way in which we have traditionally surveyed the European past. Christopher Harvie's challenging study argues that we are only beginning to realise the shift in consciousness, as well as in politics and administration, that an integrated Europe will involve
The centre of things : political fiction in Britain from Disraeli to the present by Christopher Harvie ( Book )
12 editions published between 1991 and 2004 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Centre of Things is an historical and critical essay on the role of fiction in British politics. Focusing on Disraeli, Galt, Eliot, Trollope, Wells and Cary among others, this scholarly, scornful and witty text is the first treatment of its subject for nearly seventy years. Features: Examines the 'Disraelian' type of political novel (in rapid decline today) with parliament the stage about which the action revolves. Describes another kind of political novel which subjected Parliament to the rigorous scrutiny of 'civil virtue'. examines the factors which made the political novel such a lure for publishers and politicians alike. disentangles the complex web of allusion, character and plotting which 'fixed' the genre. The Centre of Things condemns the self-deception of a complacent, incompetent political elite - left and right - within a state whose parliamentary 'elective dictatorship' have brought it to the edge of collapse

A floating commonwealth : politics, culture, and technology on Britain's Atlantic coast, 1860-1930 by Christopher Harvie ( Book )
7 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Christopher Harvie offers a new portrait of society and identity in high industrial Britain by focusing on the sea as connector, not barrier. Atlantic and 'inland sea' - from Cornwall to the Clyde - Harvie argues, together created a 'floating commonwealth' of port cities and their hinterlands whose interaction, both with one another and with nationalist and imperial politics, created an intense political and cultural synergy. At a technical level, this produced the freight steamer and the efficient new railways which opened up the developing world, as well as the institutions of international finance and communications in the age of 'telegrams and anger'. Ultimately, the resources of the Atlantic cities, their shipyards and engineering works, enabled Britain to withstand the test of the First World War." "Meanwhile, as Harvie shows, the continuous attempt to make sense of an ever-changing material reality also stimulated the discourses on which social criticism and literary modernism were based, from Thomas Carlyle to James Joyce, although the ultimate outcome - revolt in Ireland, slump and emigration - would leave enduring problems in the years to come."--BOOK JACKET

5 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Road To Home Rule documents not just the demonstrations, the party politics and international upheavals which swept the Scottish cause along - and all too frequently adrift - during the twentieth century, but also shows how it swam in the tides of social change and cultural inspiration. From Keir Hardie's and William Gladstone's promises to Tony Blair's and Donald Dewar's delivery, via a route populated by the larger-than-life characters and ideas of Hugh MacDiarmid, Winnie Ewing, Michael Forsyth, round the milestones and millstones of Conventions, Covenants, Wee Magic Stanes and Bravehearts - and Scottish life is there."
