Radical expression political language, ritual, and symbol in England, 1790-1850 by James Epstein ( )
14 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 1,019 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book examines radical politics in Britain in the wake of the American and French revolutions. Radical thinkers of the period expressed and disseminated their ideas not only in the formal language of journals and pamphlets, but also through symbols, such as the cap of liberty, which was hoisted at radical gatherings to invoke the ideas of the French Revolution. Even drinking rituals took on political meaning when radicals subverted the loyal toast to "His Sovereign Majesty, the King" with toasts "To the People, the source of all legitimate power." The book thus provides a colorful history of popular politics, examining such institutions as the Rotunda in London, a veritable circus of radical free thought where the "Devil's chaplain" preached deist sermons in full canonical robes. On a broader level, the book is an important contribution to discussions about the formation of political ideologies and communities of opinion, debates that are of great interest to historians today

Scandal of colonial rule : power and subversion in the British Atlantic during the age of revolution by James Epstein ( Book )
8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 1806 General Thomas Picton, Britain's first governor of Trinidad, was brought to trial for the torture of a free mulatto named Louisa Calderon and for overseeing a regime of terror over the island's slave population. James Epstein offers a fascinating account of the unfolding of this colonial drama. He shows the ways in which the trial and its investigation brought empire 'home' and exposed the disjuncture between a national self-image of humane governance and the brutal realities of colonial rule. He uses the trial to open up a range of issues, including colonial violence and norms of justice, the status of the British subject, imperial careering, visions of development after slavery, slave conspiracy and the colonial archive. He reveals how Britain's imperial regime became more authoritarian, hierarchical and militarised but also how unease about abuses of power and of the rights of colonial subjects began to grow"--
