Science, reform, and politics in Victorian Britain : the Social Science Association, 1857-1886 by Lawrence Goldman( Book )

15 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a study of the relationships between social thought, social policy and politics in Victorian Britain. Goldman focuses on the activity of the National Association for the Promotion of Social Science, known as the Social Science Association. For three decades this served as a forum for the discussion of Victorian social questions and as an influential adviser to governments, and its history discloses how social policy was made in these years. The Association, which attracted many powerful contributors, including politicians, civil servants, intellectuals and reformers, had influence over policy and legislation on matters as diverse as public health and women's legal and social emancipation. The SSA reveals the complex roots of social science and sociology buried in the non-academic milieu of nineteenth-century reform. And its influence in the United States and Europe allows for a comparative approach to political and intellectual development in this period
The Federalist. by Alexander Hamilton( Book )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the winter of 1787-8 a series of eighty-five essays appeared in the New York press; the purpose of the essays was to persuade the citizens of New York State to ratify the Constitution of the United States. The three authors - Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay - were respectively the first Secretary of the Treasury, the fourth President, and the first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court in American history. Each had played a crucial role in the events of the American Revolution; together they were convinced of the need to weld thirteen disparate and newly-independent states into a union. Their essays make the case for a new and united nation, governed under a written Constitution that endures to this day." "The Federalist Papers are an indispensable guide to the intentions of the founding fathers who created the United States, and a canonical text in the development of western political thought. This new edition pays full attention to the classical learning of their authors and the historical examples they deploy."--Jacket

Politics and culture in Victorian Britain : essays in memory of Colin Matthew( Book )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The specific occasion for these essays was as a tribute to the memory of the late Colin Matthew, one of the most eminent recent historians of Victorian Britain, who was himself determined to uphold the contemporary relevance of Victorian political tradition, and to explore the interface between 'politics' and 'culture'. Reflection on his intellectual achievement is a second distinctive component of this book."--Jacket

"This new book, drawn from the award-winning Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, brings together the life stories of more than 800 men and women who have shaped all aspects of the British past and who died between 2001 and 2004." "These are the people responsible for some of the major developments in the United Kingdom during the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Alongside those who left their mark in politics, the arts, business, law, military service, sport, and education are leading figures in new branches of science and medicine such as genetics, transplantation, and computing - and in new forms of entertainment and communication." "Authoritative and accessible, the biographies in this volume are written by specialist authors, many of them leading figures in their field." --Book Jacket
