Party, state, and society : electoral behaviour in Britain since 1820( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays by a group of young political historians presents a fresh approach to the study of electoral behaviour and political parties in nineteenth and twentieth-century Britain. The volume challenges the common view that political parties have been the passive beneficiaries of social and constitutional change and examines the contested ways in which parties and voters have interacted since 1820. Each chapter is an important contribution in its own right, but taken together they offer an original survey of the workings of the electorate and the party system in Britain since the 1820s. This book will be of interest to undergraduates and specialists, historians and political scientists alike
The English Constitution. With an introd. by R.H.S. Crossman by Walter Bagehot( Book )

17 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Walter Bagehot's The English Constitution (1867) is the best account of the history and workings of the British political system ever written. As arguments raged in mid-Victorian Britain about giving the working man the vote, and democracies overseas were pitched into despotism and civil war, Bagehot took a long, cool look at the "dignified" and "efficient" elements which made the English system the envy of the world. His analysis of the monarchy, the role of the prime minister and cabinet, and comparisons with the American presidential system are astute and timeless, pertinent to current discussions surrounding devolution and electoral reform. Combining the wit and panache of a journalist with the wisdom of a man of letters steeped in evolutionary ideas and historical knowledge, Bagehot produced a book which is always thoughtful, often funny, and surprisingly entertaining. This edition reproduces Bagehot's original 1867 work in full, and introduces the reader to the dramatic political events that surrounded its publication

The man behind the queen : male consorts in history by Charles Beem( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the fourteenth-century king consorts of Navarre to the modern European prince consorts of the twentieth century, the male consort has been a peculiar yet recurrent historical figure. In this impressively broad collection of essays on male partners of female monarchical rulers, leading historians of monarchy analyze how consorts have obtained and wielded power, how gender affected their perceived role, what sort of influence they were able to wield and attract politically and at court, how they defined themselves in the male gendered spheres of the arts or war, and more generally, the extent to which they contributed to the changing ideal and reality of royal families and dynasties over the centuries"--
