Royalism, print and censorship in revolutionary England by Jason McElligott( )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a study of a remarkable set of royalist newsbooks produced in conditions of strict secrecy in London during the late 1640s. It uses these flimsy, ephemeral sheets of paper to rethink the nature of both royalism and Civil War allegiance." "Royalism, Print and Censorship in Revolutionary England moves beyond the simple and simplistic dichotomies of 'absolutism' versus 'constitutionalism'. In doing so, it offers a nuanced, innovative and exciting vision of a neglected aspect of the Civil Wars." "Print has always been seen as being a radical, destabilizing, force, an agent of social change and revolution. These newsbooks, by contrast, show how lively, vibrant and exciting the use of print as an agent of conservatism could be." "In seeking to rescue the history of polemic in 1640s and 1650s England from an undue preoccupation with the factional squabbles of leading politicians, Dr McElligott offers a fundamental reappraisal of the theory and practice of censorship in early-modern England, and of the way in which to approach the history of books and print-culture."--Jacket

The Cato Street conspiracy : plotting, counter intelligence and the revolutionary tradition in Britain and Ireland by Jason McElligott( )

7 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On 23 February 1820 a group of radicals were arrested in Cato Street off the Edgware Road in London. They were within sixty minutes of setting out to assassinate the British cabinet. Five of the conspirators were subsequently executed and another five were transported for life to Australia.0The plotters were a mixture of English, Scots and Irish tradesmen, and one was a black Jamaican. They were motivated by a desire to avenge the 'Peterloo' massacre and intended to declare a republic, which they believed would encourage popular risings in London and across Britain. 0This volume of essays uses contemporary reports by Home Office spies and informers to assess the seriousness of the conspiracy. It traces the practical and intellectual origins of the plotters' willingness to use violence; describes the links between Irish and British radicals who were willing to take up arms; makes a contribution to early black history in Britain; examines the European context to events, and follows the lives and careers of those plotters exiled to Australia. 0A significant contribution to our understanding of a particularly turbulent period of British history, these well-written essays will find an appreciative audience among undergraduates, graduate students and scholars of British and Irish history and literature, black history, and the related fields of intelligence history and Strategic Studies
The perils of print culture : book, print and publishing history in theory and practice by Jason McElligott( Book )

18 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This stimulating collection of essays illustrates various pressures and concerns - both practical and theoretical - related to research in the fast-developing terrain of print culture studies. As the editors Jason McElligott and Eve Patten suggest in an engaging and provocative introduction to the volume, researchers in diverse aspects of this field regularly confront similar procedural or methodological difficulties in their work: these range from doubts about the reliability of digitized resources and concerns with the limiting parameters of 'national' book history to overall skepticism about academic definitions of what 'print culture' means in the first place. In the essays assembled here, several leading print culture experts, including Leslie Howsam, James Raven, David Finkelstein and Toby Barnard, join with a number of emerging scholars and historians of print culture to address such 'perils', in a series of lively and illuminating 'case-study' contributions to the subject"--

The entring book of Roger Morrice, 1677-1691, Volume VI : biographical dictionary with glossary, chronology by Roger Morrice( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The <I>Entring Book</I> is the longest and richest diary of public life in England during the era of the Glorious Revolution. Spanning the years 1677 to 1691, in nearly a million words, it records the downfall of the House of Stuart. This is a chronicle not only of politics and religion, but also of culture and society, gossip and rumour, manners and mores, in a teeming metropolis risen phoenix-like from the Great Fire. Its author, Roger Morrice, was a Puritan clergyman turned confidential reporter for leading Whig politicians - well-connected, a barometer of public opinion, and supremely well-informed. Written just twenty years after Pepys's Diary, the <I>Entring Book</I> depicts a darker England, thrown into a great crisis of 'popery and arbitrary power'
