Most widely held works by Ian Haywood
Bloody Romanticism : spectacular violence and the politics of representation, 1776-1832 by Ian Haywood( Book )
4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"[This book] refreshingly resituates Romanticism in the global theater of revolution, warfare and slavery from which it originally emerged. Through a series of compelling readings of key literary texts, it offers the reader a view of Romanticism in which uprisings, executions and massacres displace waterfalls, cliffsides and daffodils as the crucial reference points of the imaginary landscape at the end of the eighteenth century."--Professor Saree Makdisi, from dust jacket
The revolution in popular literature : print, politics, and the people, 1790-1860 by Ian Haywood( Book )
12 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book takes a new look at the evolution of popular literature in Britain in the Romantic and Victorian periods. Ian Haywood argues that the key developments in the history of popular literature at this time emerged from the clash between radical and reactionary politics. Both sides wanted to win the heart and mind of the 'common reader' and used print culture to try to influence a newly literate group in society. Making use of a wide range of archival and primary sources, he argues that radical politics played a decisive role in the transformation of popular literature from the plebian miscellany of the 1790s to the mass-circulation fiction and popular journalism of the 1840s. By charting the key moments in the history of 'cheap' literature, the book casts new light on many neglected popular genres and texts: the 'pig's meat' anthology, the female-authored didactic tale and Chartist fiction."--Jacket

Chartist fiction ( Book )
5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"For the first time since their appearance in Chartist newspapers these two major radical narratives are reprinted in a single volume. The Political Pilgrim's Progress combines Utopian politics with Bunyanesque satire to tell the story of the journey of Radical and his family from the City of Plunder to the City of Reform. Sunshine and Shadow is the only serialized novel to have been published in the Northern Star. It brings together fictional biography and historical chronicle to form the first truly working-class novel."--BOOK JACKET. "Both texts offer a unique insight into the literary achievements of the Chartist movement, and will be a valuable and entertaining source for scholars of radical politics. The texts are fully annotated, and the editor also provides an introduction to each story and a bibliography of recent scholarship."--BOOK JACKET
The Gordon riots : politics, culture and insurrection in late eighteenth-century Britain ( Book )
4 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Gordon riots of June 1780 were the most devastating outbreak of urban violence in British history. For almost a week large parts of central London were ablaze, prisons were destroyed and the Bank of England attacked. Hundreds of rioters were shot dead by troops and for many observers it seemed that England was on the verge of a revolution. The first scholarly study in a generation, this book brings together leading scholars from historical and literary studies to provide new perspectives on these momentous events. The essays include new archival work on the religious, political and international contexts of the riots and new interpretations of contemporary literary and artistic sources. For too long the significance of the Gordon riots has been overshadowed by the impact of the French revolution on British society and culture: this book restores the riots to their central position in late eighteenth-century Britain"--
