The English constitution by Walter Bagehot( )

613 editions published between 1863 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 8,357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Walter Bagehot's The English Constitution (1867) is the best account of the history and workings of the British political system ever written. As arguments raged in mid-Victorian Britain about giving the working man the vote, and democracies overseas were pitched into despotism and civil war, Bagehot took a long, cool look at the "dignified" and "efficient" elements which made the English system the envy of the world. His analysis of the monarchy, the role of the prime minister and cabinet, and comparisons with the American presidential system are astute and timeless, pertinent to current discussions surrounding devolution and electoral reform. Combining the wit and panache of a journalist with the wisdom of a man of letters steeped in evolutionary ideas and historical knowledge, Bagehot produced a book which is always thoughtful, often funny, and surprisingly entertaining. This edition reproduces Bagehot's original 1867 work in full, and introduces the reader to the dramatic political events that surrounded its publication
Physics and politics, or, Thoughts on the application of the principles of "natural selection" and "inheritance" to political society by Walter Bagehot( Book )

158 editions published between 1872 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 1,912 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Walter Bagehot (1826-1877) was an eminent British journalist, businessman and political commentator. After graduating from University College, London, in 1848, Bagehot joined his father's banking business. In 1857 he began to write articles for The Economist and became editor in 1861, a position he held until his death. This volume, first published in 1872, contains Bagehot's discussion of the scientific principles of progress in a society. Incorporating aspects of other social disciplines, including anthropology and Darwinian evolutionary theory, Bagehot traces the development of political society from an assumed 'pre-political' age to the development of nation-states, and examines the developments necessary for evolution into a liberal, trade-oriented society. Bagehot's appreciation of both conservative and liberal values is evident in this volume, which provides a valuable example of the influence of Darwinian thought in the late nineteenth century. This text is reissued from the 1873 second edition

Lombard Street : a description of the money market : with the addition of The currency monopoly by Walter Bagehot( )

56 editions published between 1873 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Financial observer and journalist Walter Bagehot sheds light on the world of banking in his influential tract Written in response to a nineteenth-century banking crisis in England, Walter Bagehot's influential treatise was one of the first to clearly explain complex financial systems like international banking, currency, and corporate finance in clear and easy-to-understand language. Credit, Bagehot suggests, is based primarily on trust. When the banks lose the public's trust, the entire system can collapse. In Lombard Street, Bagehot-who was the editor in chief of the Economist-sets forth a series of proposals for the strengthening and survival of struggling financial institutions, such as allowing irresponsible banks to collapse and creating strong central banks to combat inflation. His insights are as relevant in today's economic climate as they were when the book was first published in 1873.

22 editions published between 1876 and 2015 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the great short masterpieces of nineteenth-century thought, Physics and Politics is in essence a brilliant essay in social psychology. It defines with grim humor the conditions of stability and social progress. "Physics," in Bagehot's book, refers to natural science; "politics" to social science. His vastly stimulating analysis was the first important effort to comprehend the implications of the new science (especially Darwinism) for the study of political affairs. In the process, Bagehot makes unforgettably clear the complex, often tragic relation between individual and collective happiness. Roger Kimball's introduction and notes place Bagehot's ideas in perspective for today's reader and evaluate the continuing usefulness of his observations."--Jacket
