William Gladstone : new studies and perspectives by Roland Quinault( )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The figure of William Gladstone continues to loom-large in the history of nineteenth-century Britain. Not only was he Prime Minister four times and leader of the Liberal Party for over three decades, but he also took an active interest in the intellectual, imperial, military, cultural and ecclesiastical affairs of the day. Yet despite this towering presence, there is much that still remains obscure about the motivations and beliefs of the man. Divided into five sections, Images, Personal Questions, Officialdom, and Ethics and Internationalism, this collection redresses this imbalance in the hi

"This book provides the first biographical study of Charles Pelham Villiers (1802-1898), whose long UK parliamentary career spanned numerous government administrations under twenty different prime ministers. Villiers played a pre-eminent role in the Anti-Corn Law League as its parliamentary champion, introduced an important series of Poor Law reforms and later split with William Gladstone over the issue of Irish Home Rule, turning thereafter to Liberal Unionism. Hence Villiers, who remains the longest-serving MP in British parliamentary history, was intimately involved with many of the great issues of the Victorian Age in Britain"--Provided by publisher
Irish identities in Victorian Britain by Roger Swift( Book )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent studies of the experiences of Irish migrants in Victorian Britain have emphasized the significance of the themes of change, continuity, resistance and accommodation in the creation of a rich and diverse migrant culture within which a variety of Irish identities co-existed and sometimes competed. In contributing to this burgeoning historiography, this book explores and analyses the complexities surrounding the self-identity of the Irish in Victorian Britain, which differed not only from place to place and from one generation to another but which were also variously shaped by iss

Irish Migrants and Crime in the Victorian City Irish Migrants and Crime in the Victorian City by Roger Swift( )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This inaugural lecture discusses the complex relationship between Irish migration to Britain in the nineteenth century and the incidence of crime in the British cities in which the migrants settled. In particular, indications of changes following the period after the Great Famine, when migration from Ireland was at its peak, are examined, using evidence from a number of British cities; and possible explanations for the differences between the reality of Irish criminality and British perceptions of it are reported and analysed
