Thatcher and Thatcherism by Eric J Evans( )

47 editions published between 1997 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,960 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thatcherism produced dramatic changes in most aspects of public life, both in Britain and abroad. Thatcher and Thatcherism surveys the origins and impact of Thatcherism as a cultural construct and an economic creed. Centering on the career of Margaret Thatcher, the author argues that Thatcherism was a bold experiment in ideologically driven government that failed to meet its objectives while nevertheless decisively shifting the political landscape of Britain."--Jacket

The contentious tithe : the tithe problem and English agriculture, 1750-1850 by Eric J Evans( Book )

16 editions published between 1976 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1976, this book studies the impact of a uniquely unpopular tax on English rural communities. It examines the tithe system during a period when it was subject to mounting attack from political economists, agricultural improvers and radicals alike. Professor Evans has made extensive use of ecclesiastical and estate records to explain why the tithe issue became so unpopular at this time. He also studies in detail the work of the tithe commission, offering new evidence on the important question of how much the tithe system hindered agricultural improvement. This was in a period of considerable strain for the old village community, when tithe disputes significantly added to existing tensions and, particularly in the south of England, helped bring relations to crisis point."--Provided by publisher
