George III : America's last king by Jeremy Black( )

20 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sixty-year reign of George III (1760-1820) witnessed and participated in some of the most critical events of modern world history: the ending of the Seven Years' War with France, the American War of Independence, the French Revolutionary Wars, the campaign against Napoleon Bonaparte and battle of Waterloo in 1815, and Union with Ireland in 1801. Despite the pathos of the last years of the mad, blind, and neglected monarch, it is a life full of importance and interest. Jeremy Black's biography deals comprehensively with the politics, the wars, and the domestic issues, and harnesses the richest range of unpublished sources in Britain, Germany, and the United States. But, using George III's own prolific correspondence, it also interrogates the man himself, his strong religious faith, and his powerful sense of moral duty to his family and to his nation. Black considers the king's scientific, cultural, and intellectual interests as no other biographer has done, and explores how he was viewed by his contemporaries. Identifying George as the last British ruler of the Thirteen Colonies, Black reveals his strong personal engagement in the struggle for America and argues that George himself, his intentions and policies, were key to the conflict.--Publisher description

Rethinking military history by Jeremy Black( )

24 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and German and held by 1,724 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rethinking Military History "is a bold new 'thought book' that re-positions military history at the beginning of the twenty-first century. Jeremy Black reveals the main trends in the practice and approach to military history and proposes a new manifesto for the subject to move forward. This must-read study demonstrates the limitations of current approaches, including common generalizations, omissions, and over-simplications. Engaging theoretical discussions, with reference to specific conflicts, suggest how these limitations can be remedied and adapted, whilst incorporating contributions from other disciplines. Additional chapters provide a valuable and concise survey of the main themes in the study of military history from 1500 to the present day. "Rethinking Military History" is essential reading for all those with an interest in military history, and all who wish to take part in moving the discipline forward

The power of knowledge : how information and technology made the modern world by Jeremy Black( )

21 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in English and held by 1,639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Information is power. For more than five hundred years the success or failure of nations has been determined by a country's ability to acquire knowledge and technical skill and transform them into strength and prosperity. Leading historian Jeremy Black approaches global history from a distinctive perspective, focusing on the relationship between information and society and demonstrating how the understanding and use of information have been the primary factors in the development and character of the modern age. Black suggests that the West's ascension was a direct result of its institutions and social practices for acquiring, employing, and retaining information and the technology that was ultimately produced. His cogent and well-reasoned analysis looks at cartography and the hardware of communication, armaments and sea power, mercantilism and imperialism, science and astronomy, as well as bureaucracy and the management of information, linking the history of technology with the history of global power while providing important indicators for the future of our world"--

Parliament and foreign policy in the eighteenth century by Jeremy Black( )

20 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 1,562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing on a wide range of British and foreign archival sources, this book tackles the role of Parliament in the conduct of eighteenth-century foreign policy, the impact of this policy on parliamentary politics, and the quality of parliamentary debates. The study is important for our assessment of eighteenth-century Britain, and also, more generally, for an understanding of the role of contingency in the assessment of political systems."--Jacket

25 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 1,553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A history of the British Isles by Jeremy Black( Book )

62 editions published between 1996 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 1,517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the earliest pre-history to the 1990s this stirring account describes the astonishingly varied stages through which the British Isles have passed to achieve their present identity." "Just as the islands have populated and ruled so much of the rest of the world, so they have been settled themselves by many invaders, all of whom have left their mark - from Romans to Saxons, from Vikings to Normans - creating an immensely rich historical inheritance." "Perhaps most dynamic of all has always been the relationship between the four principal peoples of the islands: Scots, Irish, English and Welsh." "A History of the British Isles is not (unlike most other accounts) really just a history of England. Proper weight is given to all four, often fractious, components of the British Isles, giving the reader an admirably balanced and absorbing account - political, social, economic and cultural - of an extraordinary shared history."--Jacket
The world in the twentieth century by Jeremy Black( )

14 editions published between 2002 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This history of the twentieth century, our age, dares to take a new approach. Eschewing the standard political history of the West, Jeremy Black points up the deeper issues of the century and those which will surely determine our path in the twenty-first: belief, race, gender, technology and the environment. At the same time, there is a determined engagement with other continents, especially Asia and Africa. At this crucial turning point in history, the compelling new perspectives offered by The World in the Twentieth Century could not be more topical."--Jacket
Debating foreign policy in eighteenth-century Britain by Jeremy Black( )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focuses on how Britain's foreign policy during the eighteenth century was debated and written about in British society. Taking as a central theme the debate over policy and the development of public culture and politics, the author explores how these were linked to developing relations with Europe and helped shape colonial strategies and expectations. He highlights how widely-shared concerns about such issues as national defense, the strength of the Royal Navy, and trade protection presented little consensus in how they were to be realized, and were the subject of fierce public debate. He underlines how these kinds of issues were not considered in the abstract, but in terms of a political community that was divided over a series of key issues

European warfare, 1494-1660 by Jeremy Black( )

17 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 1,383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The start of the Italian Wars in 1494, subsequently seen as the onset of 'modern warfare', provides the starting point for this impressive survey of European warfare. In addition to conflict in early modern Europe, this book covers trans-oceanic expansion which led to interaction with extra-European forms of military might. Jeremy Black looks at technological aspects of war as well as social and political developments and consequences during this key period of military history. This sharp and compact analysis contextualises European developments, as well as establishing the global significance of events in Europe." "Black departs from recent work on military history in this period in giving due weight to the operational character and military dynamic of war alongside the social context. This text, handling a long chronological period with a broad geographical range, not only offers an excellent summary of early-modern European warfare, but is a thought-provoking survey that will interest anyone studying this period of military history."--Jacket
