The dictionary of the First World War by Stephen Pope( Book )

21 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and held by 1,028 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book's comprehensive coverage of total warfare--the battles, commanders, weapons, tactics and strategies--is interwoven with analyses of the sweeping political, social and economic changes imposed on a world order in terminal convulsion. The dictionary of the First World War represents the perspective of a new generation of historians, looking at the War as a pan-European--and indeed global--conflict. Thus the book concentrates equally on the American, French, German, British, Italian, Russian, Turkish and Austro-Hungarian experiences--together with those of the many other participating peoples and nations. In all, there are some 1200 carefully cross-referenced entries, together with a detailed day-by-day chronology and a generous provision of specially commissioned maps

16 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and Japanese and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 'British Isles' entered the twentieth century as a single state 'Great Britain and Ireland' with a 'British Empire' greater in extent and larger in population than the world had ever seen. The first fifty years saw vast change. This volume presents a very different country in 1951 from what it had been in 1901. The chapters by different authors focus on politics, economics, society, wars, and foreign policy to emphasize the interconnectedness of all these developments. These expositions reflect on 'the British Way and Purpose' from different perspectives

Politicians, diplomacy, and war in modern British history by Keith Robbins( Book )

9 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aspirations of democracy and the requirements of diplomacy have always coexisted uneasily. The politicians discussed in this book, in particular the appreciation of the careers of John Bright and James Bryce, reflect obliquely or directly on the problems of politicians who seek the 'high moral ground' either in domestic or international politics. There is also a discussion of the relationship between politicians and the press, as well as of the difficult link between cultural and political assumptions on the one hand and the facts of economic performance on the other
Political and legal perspectives by Keith Robbins( Book )

16 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Before the last quarter of the eighteenth century there was a generally clear and remarkably uniform pattern of church-state relationships across Europe. In the course of the nineteenth century this firm alliance between political and religious establishments broke down. Religious pluralism developed everywhere, though at different speeds, requiring church and state to reach fresh solutions. This volume Political and Legal Perspectives highlights the impact of broad political change, 'democratization'', on the question of religious reform, in Northern Europe. Competing political parties express
Religion, identity and conflict in Britain : from the Restoration to the twentieth century: essays in honour of Keith Robbins by Stewart J Brown( Book )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The British state between the mid-seventeenth century to the early twentieth century, was essentially a Christian state. Christianity permeated society, defining the rites of passage - baptism, first communion, marriage and burial - that shaped individual lives, providing a sense of continuity between past, present and future generations, and informing social institutions and voluntary associations. Yet this religious conception of state and society was also the source of conflict. The Restoration of the monarchy in 1660 brought limited toleration for Protestant Dissenters, who felt unable to worship in the established Church, and there were challenges to faith raised by biblical and historical scholarship, science, moral questioning and social dislocations and unrest. This book brings together a distinguished team of authors who explore the interactions of religion, politics and culture that shaped and defined modern Britain. They consider expressions of civic consciousness in the expanding towns and cities, the growth of Welsh national identity, movements for popular education and temperance reform, and the influence of organised sport, popular journalism, and historical writing in defining national life. Most importantly, the contributors highlight the vital role of religious faith and religious institutions in the understanding of the modern British state
