The Rockingham connection and the second founding of the Whig party, 1768-1773 by W. M Elofson( )

12 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and held by 1,059 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Rockingham Connection and the Second Founding of the Whig Party is a study of the ideological development of the Rockingham Whigs in Britain between 1768 and 1773 and a re-examination of the party system in the later part of the eighteenth century. W.M. Elofson traces the transition of the Rockingham Whigs from court-centred supporters of the status quo to proponents of parliamentary reform, illustrating the central role the party played in the evolution of "liberal" philosophy that preceded the massive reform movement in the next century. Elofson reveals that the Rockinghams, far more than previously recognized, were governed by a coherent set of constitutional ideals and argues that they saw "party" not primarily as a means to office but as a vehicle for public-spirited men to "secure the predominance of right and uniform principles" in the operation of the state. He examines the ideological writings of Edmund Burke, the party's noted and prolific publicist, placing them in their political context and providing a new analysis of Burke's renowned pamphlet Thoughts on the Cause of the Present Discontents (1770)
Cowboys, gentlemen & cattle thieves : ranching on the western frontier by W. M Elofson( )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 1,055 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cowboys, Gentlemen, and Cattle Thieves underscores the immense contribution of American "frontiermanship" to the Canadian west. Men and women, horses and equipment came north from Montana and other states; including notorious outlaws like the Sundance Kid." "Warren Elofson challenges traditional views that Canadian ranching society was a microcosm of the "Old World," arguing that the greatest influence on ranchers and settlers was the need to deal with the frontier environment. He makes it clear that the frontier was ultimately developed by the men and women who started family ranches and farms. By adoptng intensive agricultural practices, they carved a permanent place in rural western Canada, insuring that they and others like them would occupy the land long after most of the "cattle barons" had faded into the records of history."--Jacket

Somebody else's money : the Walrond Ranch story, 1883-1907 by W. M Elofson( )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Walrond Ranch, a cattle and horse operation in the foothills of southern Alberta, was one of the four giants of the livestock grazing industry in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. At its height, the Walrond ran over 10,000 cattle along with several hundred wellbred Clydesdale and Shire horses on nearly 300,000 acres of land
Rocking P. Ranch and the Second Cattle Frontier in Western Canada by Clay Chattaway( )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Rocking P Ranch was one of the most ambitious family ranches in Southern Alberta. Founded in 1900 by Roderick Riddle Macleay, the Rocking P flourished during the Second Cattle Frontier as open-range the Texas System ranches failed. Beginning in 1923, Maxine and Dorothy Macleay edited, reported, and published The Rocking P Gazette, a monthly newspaper grounded in the daily life of the Rocking P Ranch. With an audience of their parents and relatives, cowpunchers, teachers, and cooks, the 12- and 14-year-old sisters set out to create a family newspaper that reflected as closely as possible the commercial publications of the time. With sections for local news, advertisements, riddles, poetry, and contributions from Macleay ranch hands, The Rocking P Gazette brings the family ranch to life. Clay Chattaway and Warren Elofson draw upon this remarkable resource to explore the Second Cattle Frontier and to tell the story of the Rocking P Ranch. Through the lens of The Rocking P Gazette, Chattaway and Elofson detail not only a system of agricultural production, but a way of life that continues to this day."--
The writings and speeches of Edmund Burke by Edmund Burke( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume of The Writings and Speeches of Edmund Burke continues the story of Edmund Burke, the Rockingham party in British politics, and the American crisis. By 1774 Burke was already recognized as a master of parliamentary debate and an accomplished writer. By 1780, however, his reputation was to have risen substantially. Probably the most important single reason was his Speech on Conciliation with America, which was presented to the House of Commons in March 1775, published, and circulated to a wide audience on both sides of the Atlantic. In that speech, Burke used the full force of his intellect and eloquence to set out the Rockinghams' first comprehensive plan for achieving lasting peace in the Empire. The public commendation he received helped him to gain recognition for offerings such as his second conciliation proposal in November 1775, and his Letter to the Sheriffs of Bristol in 1777. It also gave him some of the confidence he needed to announce the Whig party's historic conversion to a moderate reform programme in his celebrated speeches on economical reform in 1779 and 1780.; Numerous writings and speeches in this volume are transcriptions of previously unpublished manuscripts from the collections at Sheffield and Northampton. These allow the reader new insights into the workings of Burke's mind not just in relation to the major political issues, but also to a multitude of engaging subjects such as education, capital punishment, religious dissent, and the return of the Rockingham Whigs to government power

So Far & Yet So Close : Frontier Cattle Ranching in Prairie Western Canada & the Northern Territory of Australia by W. M Elofson( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

So Far and Yet So Close provides a comparative study of frontier cattle ranching in two societies on opposite ends of the globe. It is also an environmental history that at the same time centres on both the natural and frontier environments. There are many points at which the western Canadian and northern Australian cattle frontiers evoke comparisons. Most obviously they came to life at about the same time: late 1870s-early 1880s. In both cases corporations were heavy investors and utilized an open range system in which tens of thousands of cattle roamed over thousands of square acres. Ranchers shared similar problems such as predators, disease, and weather, as well as markets. Ultimately, a nearly indistinguishable "country" culture developed in these geographically disparate and distant lands, which is still apparent today. Many similarities were in one way or another a reflection of frontier environmental conditions that is, conditions associated with the very "newness" of society. They included a lack of infrastructure (ie. fences), institutions (ie. police), and population (ie. consumers). However, the ranching people in these two societies had their differences too. In the end, the natural environment pushed agricultural development in these two regions along very different paths
