Nineteenth-century Britain by Christopher Harvie( Book )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 404 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 )

21 editions published between 1993 and 2004 in English and held by 364 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

A floating commonwealth : politics, culture, and technology on Britain's Atlantic coast, 1860-1930 by Christopher Harvie( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 248 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."--Jacket
