The last chronicle of Barset by Anthony Trollope( Book )

20 editions published between 1966 and 2001 in English and held by 690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Last Chronicle of Barset is the grand finale to the Barsetshire sereis of novels, Trollope's magnificnet portrayal of the professional and landed classes of Victorian England. The plot focuses on Mr. Crawley, the fanatically proud curate of Hogglestock already known to readers of Framley Parsonage. Accused of theft and persecuted by the domineering Mr. Proudie and her self-righteous followers, he is perhaps Trollope's only character conceived on a heroic scale, and his sufferings reach a tragic intensity. Other familiar characters on the Barsetshire landscape include Mr. Harding, whose old age is movingly described; Grace Crawley, who becomes romantically involved with Major Grantly; and Johnny Eames, who continues his pursuit of Lily Dale but becomes entangled in a dangerous flirtation with the intriguing Madalina Demolines. Lady Lufton, Mr. Robarts, the Greshams, and the Thornes also reappear to play their final part in the Barsetshire drama. - Back cover

Selected poetry by William Wordsworth( Book )

13 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wordsworth's verse declares a belief in the power of poetry to teach by appealing to the imagination and to the 'grand elementary principle of pleasure, by which man knows, and feels, and lives, and moves'. His unique relationship with the poet and political activist Samuel Taylor Coleridge, formed in the political and social ferment of the 1790s, produced a revolution in literature, resulting in the joint volume, Lyrical Ballads (1798-1805) - a landmark in the history of English Romanticism. This selection, chosen from the Oxford Authors critical edition, includes all Wordsworth's finest lyrics, and a large sample of The Prelude (1805), his extraordinary autobiographical poem in blank verse and the first truly great achievement of a new era in English poetry
Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens( Book )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oliver Twist is a classic tale of a boy of unknown parentage born in a workhouse and brought up under the cruel conditions to which pauper children were exposed in the Victorian England. With this novel, Dickens did not merely write a topical satire on the workhouse system and the role of the 1834 New Poor Law in fostering criminality. He created a moral fable about the survival of good, a romance, and a gripping story in which he exploited suspense and violence more effectively than any of his contemporaries. The new Oxford World's Classics edition of Oliver Twist is based on the authoritative Clarendon edition, which uses Dickens's revised text of 1846. It includes his preface of 1841 in which he defended himself against hostile criticism, and includes all twenty-four original illustrations by George Cruikshank. Stephen Gill's groundbreaking introduction gives a fascinating new account of the novel. He also provides appendices on Dickens and Cruikshank, on Dickens's Preface and the Newgate Novel Controversy, on Oliver Twist and the New Poor Law and on thieves' slang

New constitutionalism and world order by Stephen Gill( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This path-breaking collection analyzes the dialectic between legal and constitutional innovations intended to inscribe corporate power and market disciplines in world order, and the potential for challenges and alternative frameworks of governance to emerge. It provides a comprehensive approach to neoliberal constitutionalism and regulation and limits to policy autonomy of states, and how this disciplines populations according to the intensifying demands of corporations and market forces in global market civilization. Contributors examine global and local public policy challenges and consider if the ongoing crises of capitalism and world order offer states and societies opportunities to challenge this loss of policy autonomy and potentially to refashion world order. Integrating approaches to governance and world order from both leading and emerging scholars, this is an innovative, indispensable source for policymakers, civil society organizations, professionals and students in law, politics, economics, sociology, philosophy and international relations"-
