Man of the century : Winston Churchill and his legend since 1945 by John Ramsden( Book )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 860 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This portrait of Churchill after World War II examines the development of his fame and the construction of his posthumous reputation. It discusses how Churchill's personality, attitudes and vision of himself have affected our own political perception of ourselves as a nation and argues that his romantic, imperial notion of Britain has contributed directly to many of the political debates of contemporary times - particularly our attitudes in Europe. Rather than a dry political analysis, this title is a biographical study of the man who found himself described as the prized possession of the whole world, and of the whole Churchill phenomenon

From Tony Blair to Tonypandy, the BBC to the Bank of England, The Oxford Companion to 20th Century British Politics is an essential source of information on the full range of British political life during the last 100 years. In this comprehensive and authoritative guide, more than 100 contributors--journalists, scholars, former cabinet secretaries, and other specialists-provide more than 3,000 entries on a wide variety of subjects. Organized alphabetically, the entries cover the important ideas, institutions, people and events that have defined modern British politics. The scope of the companion is necessarily wide, moving from formal politics to the political culture of films, television, and the media, and from domestic economic debates to Britain's changing role on the world stage. Major conflicts and economic events, slogans and sayings, clubs, charities, and societies--the complete world of British politics is captured in this unique reference source. The companion also includes a wealth of additional resources: a list of office holders from 1900 to the present day, a table of election results up to and including the 2001 elections, the dates of ministries, and a topical table of contents.--Publisher description

The age of Churchill and Eden, 1940-1957 by John Ramsden( Book )

7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, Dr. Ramsden recounts the Conservatives' eclipse during the latter part of the Second World War, and explains the Party's crushing defeat in the postwar election of 1945. He reassesses the Tory recovery under the guidance of R.A. Butler and Lord Woolton in the later 1940s, and throws new light on how that recovery was achieved. He discusses the Party's stormy relationship with Churchill, and the efforts of other Conservatives to make him retire. He evaluates the career of Sir Anthony Eden, and the Suez crisis which ended it; and he charts the rise to the premiership of Harold Macmillan. The Age of Churchill and Eden has been written with full access to the Conservative Party's archives, both nationally (including Conservative Central Office, the Party Whips and the Research Department) and locally (the minute books of area and constituency parties)
The winds of change : Macmillan to Heath, 1957-1975 by John Ramsden( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Party's strategic shift in 1962/63 was the basis for Edward Heath's leadership (1965-1975) in both style and content. However, using newly available sources, John Ramsden reveals how far the commitment to Heathite politics in fact masked divisions that were present from the very outset. He shows how those divisions erupted to produce Heath's overthrow in 1975, and the election of Thatcher by a very different type of MP from those who had rallied to Macmillan in 1957. Not the least interest of this major study is thus the new light it throws on the roots of the Thatcher phenomenon in British Conservatism. In writing the book, John Ramsden has had full access to the Party's archives - not only centrally, but also in the Areas and in about a hundred representative constituencies. He has also made extensive use of private collections such as the papers of R.A. Butler and Sir Edward Boyle

The practical approach to skills analysis by Edwin James Singer( Book )

13 editions published between 1969 and 1970 in English and French and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book discusses the use of skills analysis in the overall preparation of training programs, the setting up and staffing of an effective training function, and the part which management must play in ensuring that the training is given successfully. It shows line managers and top management how a properly organized training program reduces the operating costs and increases the profits of the company. The use of short, sharp case studies throughout the book helps to relate theory to industrial experience, and to show how this training approach can be easily applied to a wide variety of jobs throughout the whole range of industry and commerce.

The dam busters by John Ramsden( Book )

6 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The film The Dam Busters was released in 1955, when war films were popular. Both critics and audience applauded and it made more at the box office than any other film of its year. With neither glamour nor stars to recommend it, this was a remarkable achievement. Director Michael Anderson succeeded in making a film of higher quality and deeper meaning than other war films of its time. It celebrated the gutsy ingenuity of the 'Brits at War', a sense of pride, John Ramsden argues, that has remained in British popular memory." "John Ramsden's lively and incisive book investigates the background, context and making of The Dam Busters; gives full attention to the film itself and reviews critical and popular reception. It proposes that the value of Britain's bombing campaign is now difficult to assess partly because it is influenced by the cultural impact of this film and asks how accurate a portrayal the film provides, though accuracy was both aimed at and claimed for the finished film."--BOOK JACKET
