Gladstone and the Liberal Party by Michael J Winstanley( )

22 editions published between 1989 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,652 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With a public career spanning 62 years, Gladstone dominated the Victorian political arena. Yet he remains an enigmatic figure; a high Anglican, Tory protectionist who became leader of the Liberals, a party associated with free trade and religious Nonconformity. Michael Winstanley examines both Gladstone and the environment in which he operated, concentrating in particular on the political and social composition of the party which he led.

Ireland and the land question 1800-1922 by Michael J Winstanley( )

19 editions published between 1984 and 2016 in English and held by 1,017 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This pamphlet makes use of the most recent revisionist literature to reassess the view, much propagated by nationalist sources, that Ireland was a land of impoverished peasants oppressed by English laws and absentee English landlords.

The author examines the nature of English understanding of Irish problems, which was often limited or ignorant, and attributes to it much of the unsound and ineffective ligislation passed. The book is concerned less with questions of English party politics than with the situation in Ireland itself and with the nature of the English response to it
