The Edwardian crisis : Britain, 1901-14 by David Powell( Book )
8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 267 libraries worldwide
Drawing on the fruits of recent research, this book reassesses the nature and seriousness of the Edwardian crisis, exploring the tensions of these years in relation to the longer-term trends of modern British history and the key areas of current historiographical debate. Among the themes considered are the viability of Edwardian Liberalism in the face of competition from the Labour left and the Unionist right; the problems of the Conservative party; and the expanding role of the state in the provision of social welfare and the organisation of economic and industrial life. The reasons for the growth of extra-parliamentary protest are discussed and the main components of the domestic crisis - constitutional and party conflict, suffragette militancy, trade union and Irish unrest - are examined against the background of social and economic change and the developing crisis in external affairs which culminated in the outbreak of the First World War

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 214 libraries worldwide
"This new study provides a much-needed guide to the pivotal period of British history between 1910 and 1935, against the background of upheavals such as the First World War and the transition to full democracy as a consequence of the Reform Acts of 1918 and 1928. Combining an up-to-date synthesis of previous work with a re-appraisal of the main personalities, themes and events of the period, David Powell brings clarity to this crucial yet complex period."--Jacket

British politics and the labour question, 1868-1990 by David Powell( Book )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The Labour question has been a very important factor in the history of British politics since the closing years of the nineteenth century. Since that time, governments have become more closely involved in the management and regulation of industry, the relief of unemployment and the operation of the labour market. Politicians have had to relate the growing strength of the trade unions to the other institutions of the industrial and political system and to cope with the problems of industrial relations and trade union law. The formation of a separate Labour party and its eventual replacement of the Liberals as the main alternative to the Conservatives completed the industrialisation of politics and the transference of industrial conflicts to the political sphere, with implications for public policy and electoral politics alike. This book provides a comprehensive overview of these developments and assesses their long-term significance. It examines the reasons for the emergence of the Labour question and the response of politicians to it prior to the First World War; traces the impact of the two world wars and the inter-war depression on the relationship between government, employers and unions; and analyses the attempts of successive governments since 1945 to ensure full employment and industrial peace in an era of accelerating economic decline. The author offers in this book a valuable summary of recent research while suggesting an interpretation of political history which emphasises the essential continuities of politics from the Gladstone to the Thatcher years
