Sir Robert Peel : the life and legacy by Richard A Gaunt( )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 1,095 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yet Peel's seemingly peerless reputation has never been secure. Repeal of the Corn Laws split his party; his Teelite' supporters joined the Liberals and the Conservatives remained in opposition for thirty years. His historical legacy is also troubled: was he a flexible and pragmatic Conservative moderniser or a rigid evangelistic apostle of Gladstonian free-trade liberalism, and not really a Conservative?
Unrepentant Tory : political selections from the diaries of the Fourth Duke of Newcastle-under-Lyne, 1827-38 by Henry Pelham Fiennes Pelham Clinton Newcastle( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

His diaries offer not just invaluable detail on these activities, but also a vivid personal testimony of Newcastle's political creed, and cast important light on the hopes, fears and strategies of those who resisted 'the triumph of reform' during these years." "This edition reproduces the political content of the diaries and Newcastle's published letters to the press for the period 1827-38; it is accompanied with an extensive introduction placing the diaries in their historical context, and other apparatus."--Jacket

Space and sound in the British Parliament, 1399 to the present : architecture, access and acoustics by Richard A Gaunt( Book )

4 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This publication explores the relationship between spaces, soundscapes and political culture in the British Parliament between the late fourteenth century and the present day. Experts in parliamentary history, political science, architecture and acoustics assess the influence of the pre- and post-1834 Palace of Westminster on the debate, procedure, ceremonial and identity of the two Houses of Parliament. Running themes include the layout and acoustics of the Commons chamber, women's access to politics, the Palace of Westminster as national icon and symbol of democracy, and the challenges of maintaining a historic building as the modern national legislature. This volume draws on the research of the 'St Stephen's Chapel Westminster' and 'Listening to the Commons' projects funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council at the University of York, in partnership with the UK Parliament"--

From Pitt to Peel : conservative politics in the Age of Reform by Richard A Gaunt( Book )

3 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The age of Tory reform, especially the period following the Napoleonic wars, is pivotal in British political history. Following the savage repression of radical and popular protest culminating in the 'Peterloo massacre' of 1819, the Tory party turned decisively towards modern 'one-nation' conservatism later set out by Sir Robert Peel in his 'Tamworth Manifesto'. A radical swing from blind defence of the existing order to moderate, practical reform affected most areas of policy and proceeded apace throughout the 1820s. In step with industrial and commercial progress, railway and canal expansion, came a flowering of economics, supported by banking reform. There was also ground-breaking reform of the law and legal system, persistent struggles over the reform of the Corn Laws and, in religion, the established church's eventual acceptance of Catholic Emancipation. In foreign policy, Castlereagh's Congress System was replaced by the masterful Canning's policy of supporting liberal regimes in Latin America - an early exercise in British 'informal empire'. The Conservative government left office before the great Reform Act of 1832 but conservative modernisation continued under Peel's shadow, culminating in Corn Law repeal in 1846. This is an essential textbook for all students of nineteenth-century British political history, the Conservative Party and modern Conservatism, and includes themes of striking contemporary relevance
Peers and politics, c. 1650-1850 : essays in honour of Clyve Jones( Book )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Clyve Jones did not begin his research career as a parliamentary historian. He served his apprenticeship as a historian with a scholarly edition of the correspondence of Henry Cromwell, son of the lord protector; letters dating from Henry's service in Ireland between 1655 and 1659. This was undertaken as an MLitt thesis at Lancaster University under the supervision of Professor Austin Woolrych, and already exhibited many of the qualities which would characterise Clyve's mature work: careful scholarship, a thorough grounding in primary sources, which were carefully sifted and analysed, and a prospector's eye for the telling piece of evidence, the gold nugget shining in the dross. Clyve had come to Lancaster in 1964 from Castleford Grammar School, then best known for producing the sculptor, Henry Moore, and a succession of stars of the sports field, cricketers and rugby league players. He was one of the first generation of students at the university, domiciled in digs in the bracing air of Morecambe. After completing his thesis - which his supervisor confessed at graduation ought to have been put in for a PhD - he undertook an MA in librarianship at the University of Sheffield (his dissertation forming the basis for his first publication), and obtained a post as assistant librarian at London University's Institute of Historical Research"--
