From Napoleon to the Second International : essays on nineteenth century Europe by A. J. P Taylor( Book )

15 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A.J.P. Taylor (1906-90) was one of Britain's most popular and authoritative historians. He wrote definitive works of British and diplomatic history which also became bestsellers, and was much admired for the many television lectures he gave - which he delivered without notes or visual aids and which ended precisely on time. His essays have always been recognized as amongst his best work and therefore some of the finest historical writing of the last forty years. They provide short and incisive assessments of major historical figures and issues. Combining essays from earlier collections with pieces previously unpublished in volume form, this book brings together the best of Taylor's essays on nineteenth-century British and continental European history, including pieces on Napoleon, Metternich, 1848, Bismarck, Disraeli, Parnell and the Second International. He once commented that he possessed a 'ruthless intellect, criticizing everything, never satisfied, always forcing up the standards of academic truth and artistic achievement'
Kingship and state : the Buganda dynasty by Chris Wrigley( Book )

19 editions published between 1966 and 2002 in English and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The pre-colonial kingdom of Buganda, nucleus of the present state of Uganda, has long attracted scholarly interest. Since written records are lacking entirely before 1862, historians have had to rely on oral traditions that were recorded from the end of the nineteenth century. These sources provide rich materials on Buganda in the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, but Christopher Wrigley, a senior and highly respected scholar, endeavours to show that the stories that appear to relate to earlier periods are largely mythology. He argues that this does not reduce their value, since they are of interest in their own mythical right, revealing ancient traces of sacred kingship, and also throwing oblique light on the development of the recent state. The author has written an elegant, wide-ranging and original study of one of Africa's most famous kingdoms

There is also substantial coverage of changes in Wales, Scotland and Ireland as well as in England."--Jacket

Challenges of labour : Central and Western Europe, 1917-1920 by Chris Wrigley( Book )

21 editions published between 1993 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From 1917-20 revolutionary activity and working-class unrest was rife in Europe, making this period a high-water mark for the European labour movements and socialists. Yet, except in Russia, the forces of order and property crushed revolutions with renewed strength, and succeeded in largely neutralising socialist governments. This collection of essays, all published for the first time in English, is by leading authorities in the field and provides a fresh look at these critical years. The book gives wide European coverage, examining developments in the rural provinces and key cities of both western and central Europe which were marked by revolutionary and labour protest in the period after the Great War. In-depth studies analyse the causes and extent of unrest, the factors which contributed to its initial success and failure and the influence of the propertied classes and re-establishment of the old order. The introduction draws together the individual contributions, giving a clear account of the principal themes and establishing the comparative structure of the book. The essays provide major insight into a crucial period of modern history and should raise many new questions about the events of those years
British trade unions since 1933 by Chris Wrigley( Book )

12 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This textbook reviews major issues concerning the history of British trade unions in the last two-thirds of the twentieth century. Even with the decline in membership of the 1980s and 1990s, trade unions in Britain have remained the largest voluntary organisations in the country and the total membership has remained larger than in most other countries. The book discusses many major aspects of trade unionism and many controversies concerning it, including strikes (sometimes seen as a peculiarly 'British disease'). Trade union presence in the labour market has been deemed a cause of higher unemployment and lower productivity. The trade unions have been accused of being insensitive on gender and ethnicity. They have also been accused of being corporatist, unelected partners in government (especially in the 1940-79 period). Overall, this book gives students a lucid introduction to the recent history of British trade unionism

"A. J.P. Taylor (1906-90), one of the greatest historians of the twentieth century, initially established his reputation by his work in diplomatic history. This included his magisterial The Struggle for Mastery in Europe, 1848-1918 (1954) and The Origins of the Second World War (1961), both of which have remained in print." "This collection brings together a rich selection of his essays and reviews in international history, only one of which (on Trieste) has been reprinted before. The collection includes many examples of his most lively writing, often controversial, yet usually full of insight."--Jacket

A.J.P. Taylor : radical historian of Europe by Chris Wrigley( Book )

21 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A.J.P. Taylor is an historian to be ranked along with Gibbon and Macaulay, and Chris Wrigley's biography makes clear reasons for his stature. But it is not in the least hagiographical -- this is A.J.P. Taylor warts and all. The assessment is consistently critical, pointing out his need for reassurance, wounded ego, and underlying humanity as well as his intellectual aggressiveness and brilliance. The judgment throughout is balanced and clear. Based on a complete mastery of sources, this is a biography that will be read throughout the world and used as a work of reference as well as interpretation."--Wm. Roger Louis, from dust jacket
