Classes, cultures, and politics : essays on British History for Ross Mckibbin( )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 963 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Classes, Culture, and Politics investigates those fields in British history that have been illustrated by the works of Ross McKibbin, one of the foremost historians of twentieth century Britain. Written by a distinguished team of scholars, it examines McKibbin's life and thought, and explores the implications of his arguments. One of his most important achievements has been to break down the artificial barriers that existed between 'social' and 'political' history, in order to enrich the writing of both; that legacy is reflected throughout this volume
Redbrick : a social and architectural history of Britain's civic universities by William Whyte( )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and French and held by 696 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the last two centuries Britain has experienced a revolution in higher education, with the number of students rising from a few hundred to several million. Yet the institutions that drove - and still drive - this change have been all but ignored by historians.0Drawing on a decade's research, and based on work in dozens of archives, many of them used for the very first time, this is the first full-scale study of the civic universities - new institutions in the nineteenth century reflecting the growth of major Victorian cities in Britain, such as Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham, York, and Durham - for more than 50 years. Tracing their story from the 1780s until the 2010s, it is an ambitious attempt to write the Redbrick revolution back into history.0William Whyte argues that these institutions created a distinctive and influential conception of the university - something that was embodied in their architecture and expressed in the lives of their students and staff. It was this Redbrick model that would shape their successors founded in the twentieth century: ensuring that the normal university experience in Britain is a Redbrick one.0Using a vast range of previously untapped sources, this book is not just a new history, but a new sort of university history: one that seeks to rescue the social and architectural aspects of education from the disregard of previous scholars, and thus provide the richest possible account of university life
Oxford Jackson : architecture, education, status, and style 1835-1924 by William Whyte( Book )

14 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing on extensive archival work, and illustrated with a hundred images, this is the first in-depth analysis of Jackson's career ever written. It sheds light on a little-known architect and reveals that his buildings, his books, and his work as an arts and craftsman were not just important in their own right, they were also part of a wider social change. Jackson was the architect of choice for a particular group of people, for the 'intellectual aristocracy' of late Victorian England. His buildings were a means by which they could articulate their identity and demonstrate their distinctiveness. They reformed the universities and the schools whilst he refashioned their image."
Nationalism and the reshaping of urban communities in Europe, 1848-1914( Book )

14 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book brings together a distinguished group of historians to explore the previously neglected relationship between nationalism and urban history. It reveals the contrasting experiences of nationalism in different societies and milieus. It will help historians to reassess the role of nationalism both inside and outside the nation state."--
Unlocking the church : the lost secrets of Victorian sacred space by William Whyte( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Victorians built tens of thousands of churches in the hundred years between 1800 and 1900.Wherever you might be in the English-speaking world, you will be close to a Victorian built or remodelled ecclesiastical building. Contemporary experience of church buildings is almost entirely down to the zeal of Victorians such as John Henry Newman, Henry Wilberforce and Augustus Pugin, and their ideas about the role of architecture in our spiritual life and well-being. In Unlocking the Church, William Whyte explores a forgotten revolution in social and architectural history and in the history of the Church. He details the architectural and theological debates of the day, explaining how the Tractarians of Oxford and the Ecclesiologists of Cambridge were embroiled in the aesthetics of architecture, and how the Victorians profoundly changed the ways in which buildings were understood and experienced. No longer mere receptacles for worship, churches became active agents in their own rights, capable of conveying theological ideas and designed to shape people's emotions. These church buildings are now a challenge: their maintenance, repair or repurposing are pressing problems for parishes in age of declining attendance and dwindling funds. By understanding their past, unlocking the secrets of their space, there might be answers in how to deal with the legacy of the Victorians now and into the future
The established church : past, present and future by Mark D Chapman( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The deeper issue addressed by the many historians gathered at this conference concerns the creation and continuance of the Church of England as an established, national, state church in a liberal, humanist, multicultural and secular world. This volume makes a powerful case from a Christian perspective for the continued establishment of the Church of England, though it compels both church and state to confront issues each would rather ignore. Three central issues dominate the discussion: the monarchy and the role of the monarch as Defender of the Faith; implications for the churches of the reform of the House of Lords; and gender- and sexual-equality and the question of the consecration of female and gay priests to the episcopate. It asks a number of penetrating questions, including the key issue of the extent to which churches, and particularly the Church of England, can be protected from equality legislation, while at the same time expecting to have special political and social privileges
