"From the late 1920s women dominated the British electorate. This book tackles many of the questions arising out of women's success in winning the vote in 1918. Did women capitalise on their new status by influencing British politics? Did feminism change its strategy or its objectives after the First World War? Why did the movement appear to enter a long decline from the 1930s to the 1950s? This new edition extends the topic with an examination of the emergence of Women's Liberation in the 1960s and 1970s, and of how feminism fared under Thatcher."--Jacket

25 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The March of the Women evaluates anew the militant campaign of the Edwardian era, contrasting the sharp divisions over tactics among the London leadership with the more pragmatic approach a grass roots level. It shows how the Pankhursts and the WSPU managed to combine attacking the British Establishment and its values with tapping into it for support and funds; while at the other end of the spectrum the non-militants gathered support for the cause from the working-class and the emergent Labour Party."--Jacket

State and society : British political and social history, 1870-1992 by Martin Pugh( Book )

16 editions published between 1993 and 1999 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Martin Pugh's volume offers a vigorous new interpretation of political and social developments in Britain since the late-Victorian era. With the skill and insight that characterize his earlier books, he explores as his central theme the relationship between the British state and its citizens." "He considers the extent to which negative 'Victorian' ideas about government had begun to erode even while Queen Victoria was on the throne, and emphasizes the Edwardian period as a turning point in the emergence of a more positive view of the state. The Great War, seen as a stimulus to innovation in the short-run, is revealed as a powerful agent of reaction against change in the longer term. As Britain suffered economic decline and political upheaval between the wars, laissez-faire became less attainable, or desirable. The emergence of a phase of consensus in political, social, and economic affairs in the aftermath of the Second World War, and the persistence of that consensus up to the mid 1970s, is a complex phenomenon that receives thorough examination - as do the reasons for the breakdown of post-war policies, in a society in full retreat from great power status, and the attempts since 1979 to return to a state of 'Victorian' proportions, with the rise and fall of Thatcherism viewed in the context of long-term historical changes." "State and Society reveals a refreshingly wide range of interests, integrating the history of women into the mainstream of British historical change and providing a new interpretative framework for the political and social developments of the period. It offers a welcome perspective on the past ... and the present."--Jacket

The Pankhursts by Martin Pugh( Book )

21 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Outspoken, defiant and seemingly fearless, under the leadership of Emmeline and Christabel Pankhurst the militant suffragettes took the Votes for Women debate to the streets and more than any other social movement revolutionized the notion of Victorian womanhood." "The Pankhursts is the first full account of the careers and controversies surrounding Emmeline and her three daughters in over thirty-three years. Martin Pugh's meticulous research makes use of neglected archive material and eye-witness accounts to examine the tense relationships, the tortured political disagreements and alliances, and the very public victories and defeats that marked the lives of this sometimes dysfunctional, but always exceptional, family. Pugh exposes the inner workings of the suffragette movement - its militaristic style, its links with the British establishment, its success in raising funds from wealthy supporters and its capacity to withstand two and a half years of suppression by the government."--Jacket
"Hurrah for the blackshirts!" : Fascists and Fascism in Britain between the Wars by Martin Pugh( Book )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book demonstrates for the first time the true spread and depth of fascist beliefs - and the extent to which they were distinctly British. Like the Continental movements, fascism in Britain encompassed the corporate state, charismatic leadership and youthful rejection of the decadent rule of the older generation. But was it less anti-Semitic? Was it readier to adopt a feminist agenda? And was the fact that Britain finally repudiated fascism more a matter of timing and chance than of fundamental obstacles in British society and politics?"--Jacket
Speak for Britain! : a new history of the Labour Party by Martin Pugh( Book )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Speak for Britain! charts labour's rise to power by re-examining the impact of the First World War, the General Strike of 1926, labour's breakthrough at the 1945 general election, the influence of post-war affluence and consumerism on the fortunes and character of the party. and its revival after the defeats of the Thatcher era. It argues that the party's long-term indifference - and even hostility - towards constitutional reform smoothed the party's transition to the role of a governing party and compounded the common ground with Conservatism."--Jacket

Women and the women's movement in Britain since 1914 by Martin Pugh( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new edition of an established text brings the history of the women's movement in Britain right up to the present day. Updated and expanded, the third edition features a new final chapter focusing on the parliamentary breakthrough of 1997 and the likely impact of women in the upcoming general election. Another major addition is the study of the effects of the Thatcher era on a generation of women, from a greater distance. The book has been thoroughly revised throughout to analyse the themes and developments of the new millennium, including women's employment, women and liberal society, and women in public life."--

This work shows how the British people reacted to the privations of wartime by indulging in leisure activities
