Garibaldi by Jasper Godwin Ridley( Book )

33 editions published between 1974 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 1,302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Giuseppe Garibaldi (Italian pronunciation: [d{7f0292}uzppe aribaldi]) (July 4, 1807 ? June 2, 1882) was an Italian general and politician. He is considered, with Camillo Cavour, Victor Emmanuel II and Giuseppe Mazzini, as one of Italy's "fathers of the fatherland". Garibaldi was a central figure in the Italian Risorgimento, since he personally commanded and fought in many military campaigns that led eventually to the formation of a unified Italy. He generally tried to act on behalf of a legitimate power, which does not make him exactly a revolutionary: for example, he was appointed general by the provisional government of Milan in 1848, General of the Roman Republic in 1849 by the Minister of War, and led the Expedition of the Thousand on behalf and with the consent of Victor Emmanuel II."--Wikipedia
Thomas Cranmer by Jasper Godwin Ridley( Book )

44 editions published between 1962 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas Cranmer (2 July 1489 ? 21 March 1556) was a leader of the English Reformation and Archbishop of Canterbury during the reigns of Henry VIII, Edward VI and, for a short time, Mary I. He helped build a favourable case for Henry's divorce from Catherine of Aragon which resulted in the separation of the English Church from union with the Holy See. Along with Thomas Cromwell, he supported the principle of Royal Supremacy, in which the king was considered sovereign over the Church within his realm."--Wikipedia
John Knox by Jasper Godwin Ridley( Book )

17 editions published between 1968 and 1970 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the most comprehensive biography of John Knox since Hume Brown's major study, published more than seventy years ago. The personality of Knox has alternately fascinated and appalled his posterity. The aristocratic eighteenth century condemned him; the Puritanical and radical nineteenth century admired him. Mr. Ridley's twentieth-century view is that Knox, despite his intolerance and the tyranny of his Church Sessions, was a great contributor to the struggle for human freedom. One can appreciate the tribute that was paid to him, ten years after his death, by his English Puritan follower, John Field. "What a heroical and bold spirit he was!" [Book jacket]

Mussolini by Jasper Godwin Ridley( Book )

26 editions published between 1997 and 2002 in 5 languages and held by 957 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This biography of Benito Mussolini describes his upbringing in the violent society of nineteenth-century Italy and the revolutionary traditions of Italian Socialism; his suspension from school for attacking other boys with knives; his imprisonment in Switzerland as an anarchist tramp. He had numerous love affairs and became a brilliant orator and journalist. He founded the Fascist party and ordered his squads to burn down the party offices of the Communists and Socialists during four years of virtual civil war. Mussolini, having become Prime Minister and dictator after the March on Rome, showed his true colors as an empire builder and, eventually, as a racist and persecutor of the Jews

"Louis-Napoléon Bonaparte (20 April 1808 ? 9 January 1873) was the first President of the French Republic and, as Napoleon III, the ruler of the Second French Empire. He was the nephew and heir of Napoleon I. Elected President by popular vote in 1848, he initiated a coup d'état in 1851, before ascending the throne as Napoleon III on 2 December 1852, the forty-eighth anniversary of Napoleon I's coronation. He ruled as Emperor of the French until 4 September 1870. He holds the distinction of being both the first titular president and the last monarch of France....Doña María Eugenia Ignacia Augustina de Palafox-Portocarrero de Guzmán y Kirkpatrick, 16th Countess of Teba and 15th Marquise of Ardales (5 May 1826 ? 11 July 1920), known as Eugénie de Montijo (French pronunciation: {7f200b}[ø?eni d montixo]), was the last Empress consort of the French from 1853 to 1871 as the wife of Napoleon III, Emperor of the French."--Wikipedia
Maximilian and Juárez by Jasper Godwin Ridley( Book )

24 editions published between 1992 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 846 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the great tragicomedies of the nineteenth century, the attempt by Napoleon III to establish Archduke Maximilian of Austria as the emperor of Mexico. Biographer Jasper Ridley provides a colorful narrative of this ill-starred undertaking, which pitted liberals against conservatives and the New World against the Old, and ended with the execution of Maximilian, the insanity of his wife, Charlotte, and the emergence of the United States as a world power.--From publisher description
Bloody Mary's martyrs : the story of England's terror by Jasper Godwin Ridley( Book )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this chronicle of a Catholic monarch's heartless rage, a nation's fear, and the unimaginable courage of the Protestants who died for their faith, Jasper Ridley explores the dark years of Mary Tudor's reign and the most extreme persecution ever to occur in England--more than three hundred victims in less than three years. Within months of her ascension to the English throne in 1553, Mary restored Roman Catholicism to the nation, reinstated papal supremacy, wedded the Spanish prince Philip, and sealed an alliance with Catholic Spain. Her marriage failed to produce an heir, however. That failure--a sign, in Mary's view, of God's displeasure with the practice of "heretic" religion in England--prompted the childless queen to initiate her purge. Thus began the fires at Smithfield, and hundreds of Protestants--among them the Anglican bishop Hugh Latimer and Archbishop of Canterbury Thomas Cranmer, as well as many prominent members of the nobility--met their death at the stake. This meticulously researched history relates their tragic, brutal, and often inspiring tale

The houses of Hanover and Saxe-Coburg-Gotha by John Clarke( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When the great-grandson of James I became king in 1714, few were more disquieted at the imposition of the Elector of Hanover on the English and Scottish thrones than George I himself; it was an uncomfortable beginning to a new dynasty. The House of Hanover and Saxe-Coburg-Gotha describes the lives of the monarchs of those two houses against a background of war, American Independence and the Empire. Beautifully illustrated and accessibly written, these are the remarkable stories of the men and women - including 'mad' King George III and Queen Victoria - at the heart of English history."--Jacket
