53 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 2,083 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book gives a clear chronological account of the campaigns on the Western and Eastern Fronts and then moves on to investigate areas that many studies ignore - the war poets, the diplomacy of war-aims and peace moves, logistics, and 'the experience of
The world since 1945 : a concise history by Keith Robbins( )

16 editions published between 1988 and 2009 in English and held by 1,367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

10 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,175 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

England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales : the Christian Church, 1900-2000 by Keith Robbins( )

16 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 803 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The massive change experienced by the countries and people of the Isles since 1900 has encompassed shifting relationships between England, Ireland (and Northern Ireland), Scotland and Wales, the end of the British Empire, the emergence of a new Europe and, latterly, major immigration of adherents of Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism and other faiths from outside Europe: developments scarcely conceivable at the outset. Such a broad contextual perspective provides an essential background to understanding the puzzling ambiguities evident both in secularization and enduring Christian faith. Robbins provides a cogent and compelling overview of this turbulent century for the churches of the Isles."--BOOK JACKET
The dictionary of the First World War by Stephen Pope( Book )

12 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and held by 726 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

"John Bright (16 November 1811? 27 March 1889), Quaker, was a British Radical and Liberal statesman, associated with Richard Cobden in the formation of the Anti-Corn Law League.

Før 1914 var pacifister i England spredt rundt om i små grupper, som af religiøse eller etiske grunde modsatte sig krig. Under 1. Verdenskrig stod disse små samfund overfor nogle problemer, som de hver især søgte løsning på. Efter krigen rettedes håbet om fred mod Folkeforbundet
Great Britain : identities, institutions, and the idea of Britishness by Keith Robbins( Book )

24 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The result - entertaining as well as informative, and with many attractive illustrations - is a crisp single-volume history of Britain since early times (though it concentrates particularly on the early modern and modern periods, and its emphasis, in keeping with the series remit, is on the contribution of the past to the making of the present). But the book has other, more distinctive aims

The British Isles, 1901-1951( Book )

15 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and Japanese and held by 423 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

Political and legal perspectives( )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 417 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
