Chartism : a new history by Malcolm Chase( )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chartism, the mass movement for democratic rights, dominated British domestic politics in the late 1830s and 1840s. It mobilised over three million supporters at its height. Few modern European social movements, certainly in Britain, have captured the attention of posterity to quite the extent it has done. Encompassing moments of great drama, it is one of the very rare points in British history where it is legitimate to speculate how close the country came to revolution. It is also pivotal to debates around continuity and change in Victorian Britain, gender, language and identity
1820 : disorder and stability in the United Kingdom by Malcolm Chase( )

7 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Integrating in detail the experiences of both Britain and Ireland, 1820 provides a compelling narrative and analysis of the United Kingdom in a year of European revolution. It charts the events and forces that tested the government almost to its limits, and the processes and mechanisms through which order was maintained. This book will be required reading for everyone interested in late-Georgian and early nineteenth-century Britain or Ireland. 1820 is about much more than a single year. Locating the Queen Caroline divorce crisis within a broader analysis of the challenges confronting the gover

Early trade unionism : fraternity, skill, and the politics of labour by Malcolm Chase( Book )

20 editions published between 1998 and 2017 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Once the heartland of British labour history, trade unionism has been marginalised in much recent scholarship. In a critical survey from the earliest times to the nineteenth century, this book argues for its reinstatement. Trade unionism is shown to be both intrinsically important and to provide a window onto the broader historical landscape; the evolution of trade union principles and practices is traced from the seventeenth century to mid-Victorian times. Underpinning this survey is an explanation of labour organisation that reaches back to the fourteenth century. Throughout, the emphasis is on trade union mentality and ideology, rather than on institutional history. There is a critical focus on the politics of gender, on the demarcation of skill and on the role of the state in labour issues. New insight is provided on the long-debated question of trade unionś'; contribution to social and political unrest from the era of the French Revolution through to Chartism."--Provided by publisher
Living and learning : essays in honour of J.F.C. Harrison( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This original collection of critical essays on key issues of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century rural life, popular politics and belief brings together fifteenth historians of the first rank. All have been closely associated with the influential figure J. F. C. Harrison, and all share an interest in the importance of the intimately personal in history, as opposed to the history of impersonal institutions. Among essays on popular belief are studies of millenarianism, the secularist tradition and a fascinating case study of American Muggletonianism - the last by the late E. P. Thompson. Other important essays address Chartism, gender and autobiography, vegetarianism and popular journalism. There are critical evaluations of the influence of America on British radicalism and socialism, on the motives that drove workers' children to become teachers on the construction of images of English rural life
The life and literary pursuits of Allen Davenport : with a further selection of the author's work by Allen Davenport( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Allen Davenport, a key figure linking Chartism with the French Revolution, was an important propagandist for agrarian reform, a critical follower of Robert Owen, one of the first male supporters of the feminist causes and birth control and a leading member of the revolutionary underground movement in Regency London. He was a prolific author, political journalist and poet. His autobiography, published in 1845, has long been presumed lost; historians have had to make do with tantalising fragments from contemporary reviews. When a copy was found in Nashville in 1982 it was immediately recognised as a unique source of information about nineteenth-century popular politics."--BOOK JACKET. "This Scolar Press volume reprints the complete text with editorial commentary, supplemented by a careful selection of Davenport's other writing. The Life and Literary Pursuits of Allen Davenport gives a unique insight into the cultural and political life of England in the crowded years between Peterloo and Chartism."--Jacket

‘An Overpowering “Itch for Writing”’: R.K. Philp, John Denman and the Culture of Self-Improvement( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract The abstract for your paper is included below. This will appear online only. After a briefly prominent career in Chartism, Robert Kemp Philp (1819–82) became one of the most widely published authors in Victorian Britain, promoting self-help and self-improvement through education. From a background in magazine journalism, he moved to producing serialised reference works which, when completed, were re-published in book form. This hybridisation of periodical journalism and the non-fiction book created a genre distinct from popular novels, non-fiction and magazines, yet one which was indebted to all three. The best known, Enquire Within Upon Everything (1856) sold almost 1.3 million copies by 1900 and remained in print until 1973. However, Philp has not enjoyed an enduring reputation: almost all his work was published anonymously, while the consumption of popular non-fiction has been largely overlooked in histories of the printed word. John Denman (fl. 1863–9) inhabited the shadier world of horse racing, where he was a high-stakes gambler and promoted off-course betting after it was criminalised. The article establishes a profound connection between the apostle of self-improvement and the mercurial man of the Turf: Denman was Philp’s alias. Their careers are reconstructed and analysed. Social ambition and a desire for fame impelled Philp to be a profligate author; but both he and his alter ego claimed to systematise hitherto opaque, confusing and inaccessible fields of knowledge. Philp took significant risks legally, financially and with his family’s reputation and well-being. This contrasts sharply with the picture of domestic contentment Philp assiduously promoted as a writer, but ideals of self-improvement underpinned them both
