"This book examines the process largely from the official British point of view. How far was Britain compelled to abandon her Empire, and how far did she do so voluntarily? The thirty-year rule governing the release of British documents means that many new papers, which heretofore were not available to researchers, have been used in this work."--Jacket
Between the wars, 1919-1939 : the cartoonists' vision by Roy Douglas( Book )

13 editions published between 1992 and 2016 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cartoonists recorded the exploits of the political leaders of the grim world of the 1920s and 1930s in cartoons which were followed by millions. Comic, mordant and irreverent, political cartoons often reveal more about the contemporary concerns of a world experiencing the Slump, rising nationalism and aggression than either official documents or the work of most journalists. Published in newspapers or magazines with a wide circulation, they 'made sense' to the ordinary reader. More than half a century on, that sense of immediate identification has been lost, and political cartoons of the period now need detailed explanation. Through this book, it is easy to trace the decay of hope in the 1920s through the fear of war in the early 1930s to the determination, at the decade's end, that Nazism and Fascism 'must be stopped'. These cartoons, intended for the man and woman 'in the street' in Europe, North America, the Soviet Union and Asia, mirror the changing attitudes and beliefs of those 'ordinary' people as nations shaped up for the Second World War

The Great War, 1914-1918 : the cartoonists' view by Roy Douglas( Book )

10 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book tells the story of the main events of the war, drawing on contemporary cartoons from Britain, France, Germany, the United States, Russia and other countries. The cartoons are used primarily to illustrate events: to make them more vivid to the reader, but also to bring out aspects of those events which are easy to learn, but complex to comprehend. Why, for example, were people on both sides, of all stations and ranks, prepared to endure the privations and sufferings of the war?"--Jacket

Great nations still enchained : the cartoonists' vision of empire, 1848-1914 by Roy Douglas( Book )

12 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The grandeur of the great imperial powers of the nineteenth century - Britain, France, Germany, Russia, Austria-Hungary and even the burgeoning United States, was constantly subverted by the cartoonists of the day. As Roy Douglas reveals, cartoons are often more accurate guides to popular feelings than the newspapers in which they appeared. In this, his third look at history through the eyes of the cartoonist, Roy Douglas provides a clear historical narrative which explains the subtle meaning below the surface of the cartoons. Taken from the period leading to the First World War, these cartoon
Taxation in Britain since 1600 by Roy Douglas( Book )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Plucking the goose to get the maximum number of feathers for the minimum number of squawks. This view of taxation is partly, but only partly, correct. The total volume of taxation is certainly related largely to what the taxpayer thinks is worth paying for, and how much he or she is prepared to pay. Both of these items have changed enormously over three and a half centuries, but there is a good deal more to it than that. The growth of taxation has not been regular throughout the period. For much of the time, taxation has been rising almost continuously; but for a large part of the nineteenth century the total volume of taxation extracted, as well as the tax burden on the individual citizen, actually declined. Patterns in taxation change may be discerned. In particular, wars have always resulted in taxation increases, and when the war is finished taxation never settles down to a level as low as it had been before the war began. This book seeks to understand and explain the reasons for these changing patterns, and should be of interest to the general reader, as well as the historian or economist
