Portrait of a party : the Conservative Party in Britain 1918-1945 by Stuart Ball( )

14 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Conservative Party is the least investigated and understood of British political parties, despite its long record of success. Using an original approach and an unparalleled range of sources, Stuart Ball analyses the nature and working of the Conservative Party during one of the most significant and successful periods in its history. The creation of a democratic franchise in 1918 was followed by nearly three decades of Conservative dominance: it was the largest party in the House of Commons and in government for almost 25 years between 1918 and 1945. Stuart Ball explores this remarkable record in a different way, by taking a thematic rather than a chronological approach. He begins with the foundations of Conservative principles, attitudes, and identities, and examines the nature of the party's electoral support. He investigates the Conservative Party as an organism, uncovering the composition, roles, and relationships of every level from the constituency grass-roots, through the party machine and the parliamentary ranks, to the Cabinet Ministers and the Party Leader. Portrait of a Party is based upon a wide range of archives - including the personal papers of all five Party Leaders, nearly 50 Cabinet Ministers and 85 backbench MPs, party officials and others - combined with the rich resources of the national and regional records at the Conservative Party Archive, and a major investigation to locate all the significant collections of local Conservative Association records in England, Scotland, and Wales: a total of 215 constituencies, from Truro to Inverness. These sources shed new light on topics which are essential to an understanding of British history in the inter-war period and the development the Conservative Party to the present day."--Publisher's website

11 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The period covered in this volume opens with appeasement and the growing shadow of war in the 1930s. The diary contains a vivid account of politics and strategy during the Second World War from the threat of invasion in 1940, through victory in North Africa in 1943, to growing fear of Russia's advance in 1945. After a break, the diary resumes in 1947 with the Labour government facing the bitter winter and economic pressure. It concludes with the coming of the Cold War and the Conservative recovery of 1950-51"--Jacket

Winston Churchill by Stuart Ball( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and Portuguese and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Winston Churchill's key role in the outcome of the Second World War brought him international renown and made him the most significant figure in twentieth-century British history. Born into an aristocratic family in 1875, his life spanned nine decades of personal, social, and political change, and it is against this background that the author, a leading historian of modern British politics, discusses the remarkable ups and downs of Churchill's career."

Dole queues and demons : British election posters from the Conservative Party archive by Stuart Ball( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A blend of graphic design, bold art or photography and cunning psychology, election posters are an unsung art form, stretching back to the dawn of the twentieth century. Exploiting the Conservative Party Archive held at the Bodleian Library which contains over 700 posters, this book charts the evolution of the Conservatives' election posters. Divided into chapters along political periods, the book highlights the changing fashions in and attitudes to advertising, political ideology, slogans, combativeness and above all, propriety. Each chapter includes a brief introduction discussing the major themes of the period as well as captions explaining specific issues related to the individual posters. "From demons to dole queues" gives a fascinating insight into the issues and strategies of the Conservative Party throughout the twentieth century, and up to the present day. A foreword by advertising guru Maurice Saatchi discusses the posters from a communication and design perspective
Conservative politics in national and imperial crisis : letters from Britain to the Viceroy of India 1926-31 by Stuart Ball( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whilst serving in the prestigious post of Viceroy of India between 1926 and 1931, Lord Irwin (later the Earl of Halifax) was kept informed about political events in Britain by frequent and lengthy letters from Cabinet Ministers, senior Conservative MPs and other prominent figures, such as the editor of The Times. Covering events from the General Strike of May 1926 to Irwin's negotiation of a pact with Gandhi in March 1931, these private and previously unpublished letters mix analysis and gossip. They offer a frank account from within the highest political circles of the Baldwin government of 1924-29 and the serious crisis in the Conservative Party which followed in 1929-31. There is also much commentary on major figures such as Stanley Baldwin, Neville Chamberlain, Winston Churchill and Ramsay MacDonald. Of great depth and richness, and emanating from experienced and shrewd political insiders, this collection is an essential historical source for British history between the two world wars.--

Analog inter-facing to embedded microprocessors : real world design by Stuart R Ball( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analog Interfacing to Embedded Microprocessors addresses the technologies and methods used in interfacing analog devices to microprocessors, providing in-depth coverage of practical control applications, op amp examples, and much more. A companion to the author's popular Embedded Microprocessor Systems: Real World Design, this new embedded systems book focuses on measurement and control of analog quantities in embedded systems that are required to interface to the real world. At a time when modern electronic systems are increasingly digital, a comprehensive source on interfacing the real world to microprocessors should prove invaluable to embedded systems engineers, students, technicians, and hobbyists. Anyone involved in connecting the analog environment to their digital machines, or troubleshooting such connections will find this book especially useful. Stuart Ball is also the author of Debugging Embedded Microprocessor Systems, both published by Newnes. Additionally, Stuart has written articles for periodicals such as Circuit Cellar INK, Byte, and Modern Electronics. Provides hard-to-find information on interfacing analog devices and technologies to the purely digital world of embedded microprocessors. Gives the reader the insight and perspective of a real embedded systems design engineer, including tips that only a hands-on professional would know. Covers important considerations for both hardware and software systems when linking analog and digital devices
