Liquidation of empire : the decline of the British Empire by Roy Douglas( Book )

"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

Taxation in Britain since 1600 by Roy Douglas( Book )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 245 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
Great nations still enchained : the cartoonists' vision of empire, 1848-1914 by Roy Douglas( Book )

10 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in English and held by 240 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

Liberals : a history of the Liberal and Liberal Democratic parties by Roy Douglas( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The party of Gladstone, Asquith and Lloyd George, the Liberal Party emerged in mid-Victorian Britain from a combination of Whigs, Radicals and Peelite Tories. It was a dominant force in Britain, and the world, at the height of the power of the British Empire. Split by Gladstone's Home Rule Bills, it nevertheless returned to power in Edwardian England and held it until after the outbreak of the First World War, with Lloyd George heading a Coalition Government from 1916-22. Riddled by internal divisions and increasingly challenged by Labour, the party lost ground in Parliament, becoming little more than a rump for many years. With the foundation of the Social Democrats in 1981, and their subsequent merger with the Liberals as Liberal Democrats in 1988, a modern version of the party emerged, under Paddy Ashdown and now Charles Kennedy as a significant third force in British politics."--Jacket

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

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 69 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
