The British government and the city of London in the twentieth century( )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 735 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relationship between the British government and the City of London has become central to debates on modern British economic, political and social life. For some the City's financial and commercial interests have exercised a dominant influence over government economic policy, creating a preoccupation with international markets and the strength of sterling which impaired domestic industrial and social well-being. Others have argued that government seriously constricted financial markets, jeopardising Britain's most successful economic sector. This 2004 collection of essays was the first book to address these issues over the entire twentieth century. It brings together leading financial and political historians to assess the government-City relationship from several directions and by examination of key episodes. As such, it will be indispensable not just for the study of modern British politics and finance, but also for assessment of the worldwide problem of tensions between national governments and international financial centres
Stanley Baldwin : conservative leadership and national values by Philip Williamson( Book )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and Hungarian and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stanley Baldwin (1867-1947) is one of the most significant modern British politicians, but also one of the most controversial and puzzling." "This book provides a new understanding of Baldwin's career, including the first serious analysis of the moral and intellectual influences of his early life. Its main concerns are the investigation of a Conservative mind, and its communication with the various audiences that constituted the political nation. This is not a conventional biography but rather an examination of the nature of political leadership, Conservative politics, and 'national values'."--Jacket
National crisis and national government : British politics, the economy and Empire, 1926-1932 by Philip Williamson( Book )

11 editions published between 1992 and 2003 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Baldwin papers : a conservative prime minister, 1908-1947 by Stanley Baldwin Baldwin( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This edition contains a selection of Baldwin's letters, reports of his conversations, related documents and illustrations, with an extensive commentary. It has two main purposes. The first is to publish important documents on Conservative and ministerial politics, as perceived and practised by their leader. These deal with major issues and episodes from the destruction of the Lloyd George Coalition to the Abdication, and relationships among leading politicians and other public figures, notably Churchill, the Chamberlains, press controllers and three kings. Less explicit but of equal importance is considerable evidence on the environments, routines, courtesies and culture of high political society."
The modernisation of Conservative politics : the diaries and letters of William Bridgeman, 1904-1935 by William Bridgeman( Book )

7 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

National prayers : special worship since the Reformation( Book )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the sixteenth century, the governments and established churches of the British Isles have summoned the nation to special acts of public worship. These special prayers, special days of worship and anniversary commemorations were national events, reaching into every parish in England and Wales, in Scotland, and in Ireland. They had considerable religious, ecclesiastical, political, ideological, moral and social significance, and they produced important texts: proclamations, council orders, addresses and - in England and Wales, and in Ireland - prayers or complete liturgies which for specified periods supplemented or replaced the services in the Book of Common Prayer. Many of these acts of special worship and most of the texts have escaped historical notice. National Prayers. Special Worship since the Reformation, in three volumes, provides the edited texts, commentaries and source notes for each of the nearly nine hundred occasions of special worship, and for each of the annual commemorations. The second volume contains the texts and commentaries for the numerous and frequent special prayers, fast days and thanksgivings during the wars which consolidated the 1688 revolution, through the long imperial wars of the eighteenth century, and the wars against revolutionary and Napoleonic France, as well as prayers and thanksgivings associated with Jacobite risings, epidemics, social unrest, and episodes in the lives of the kings and queens
Baldwin papers : a conservative statesman 1908-1947 by Stanley Baldwin Baldwin( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The significance of Stanley Baldwin (1867-1947) is self evident. As Conservative party leader and three times prime minister, he was at the heart of most of the great political debates and national events of interwar Britain." "This edition contains a selection of Baldwin's letters, reports of his conversations, related documents and illustrations, with an extensive commentary. It has two main purposes. The first is to publish important documents on Conservative and ministerial politics, as perceived and practised by their leader. These deal with major issues and episodes from the destruction of the Lloyd George Coalition to the Abdication, and relationships among leading politicians and other public figures, notably Churchill, the Chamberlains, press controllers and three kings. Less explicit but of equal importance is considerable evidence on the environments, routines, courtesies and culture of high political society." "The second purpose of this edition is to provide a documentary account of Baldwin himself, revealing in his own words his circumstances, personality, beliefs, friendships and enmities. These sources on national politics and the prime minister will make this edition indispensable for studies of public life in interwar Britain."--BOOK JACKET

General fasts, thanksgivings and special prayers in the British Isles, 1689-1870( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the sixteenth century, the governments and established churches of the British Isles have summoned the nation to special acts of public worship during periods of anxiety and crisis, at times of celebration, or for annual commemoration and remembrance. These special prayers, special days of worship and anniversary commemorations were national events, reaching into every parish in England and Wales, in Scotland, and in Ireland. They had considerable religious, ecclesiastical, political, ideological, moral and social significance, and they produced important texts: proclamations, council orders, addresses and - in England and Wales, and in Ireland - prayers or complete liturgies which for specified periods supplemented or replaced the services in the Book of Common Prayer. Many of these acts of special worship and most of the texts have escaped historical notice. National Prayers. Special Worship since the Reformation, in three volumes, provides the edited texts, commentaries and source notes for each of the nearly nine hundred occasions of special worship, and for each of the annual commemorations. [This] second volume contains the texts and commentaries for the numerous and frequent special prayers, fast days and thanksgivings during the wars which consolidated the 1688 revolution, through the long imperial wars of the eighteenth century, and the wars against revolutionary and Napoleonic France, as well as prayers and thanksgivings associated with Jacobite risings, epidemics, social unrest, and episodes in the lives of the kings and queens."--
