Building Jerusalem : the rise and fall of the Victorian city by Tristram Hunt( Book )

27 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 844 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Manchester's deadly cotton works to London's literary salons, an exploration of how the Victorians created the modern city. Since Dickens first described Coketown in Hard Times, the nineteenth-century city, born of the industrial revolution, has been a byword for deprivation, pollution, and criminality. Yet, as historian Hunt argues, the Coketowns of the 1800s were far more than a monstrous landscape of factories and tenements. Hunt shows how the Victorians translated their energy and ambition into a grand vision of the utopian city on a hill. He surveys the great civic creations, from town halls to city squares, sidewalks, and even sewers, to reveal a story of middle-class power and prosperity and the liberating mission of city life. The Victorians worked to turn even the smokestacks of Manchester and Birmingham into sites of freedom and art. And they succeeded--until twentieth-century decline transformed wealthy metropolises into dangerous inner cities.--From publisher description

Cities of empire : the British colonies and the creation of the urban world by Tristram Hunt( Book )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An original history of the most enduring colonial creation, the city, explored through ten portraits of powerful urban centers the British Empire left in its wake. At its peak, the British Empire was an urban civilization of epic proportions, leaving behind a network of cities which now stand as the economic and cultural powerhouses of the twenty-first century. In a series of ten vibrant urban biographies that stretch from the shores of Puritan Boston to Dublin, Hong Kong, New Delhi, Liverpool, and beyond, acclaimed historian Tristram Hunt demonstrates that urbanism is in fact the most lasting of Britain's imperial legacies. Combining historical scholarship, cultural criticism, and personal reportage, Hunt offers a new history of empire, excavated from architecture and infrastructure, from housing and hospitals, sewers and statues, prisons and palaces. Avoiding the binary verdict of empire as 'good' or 'bad,' he traces the collaboration of cultures and traditions that produced these influential urban centers, the work of an army of administrators, officers, entrepreneurs, slaves, and renegades. In these ten cities, Hunt shows, we also see the changing faces of British colonial settlement: a haven for religious dissenters, a lucrative slave-trading post, a center of global hegemony. Lively, authoritative, and eye-opening, Cities of Empire makes a crucial new contribution to the history of colonialism"--
The frock-coated communist : the revolutionary life of Friedrich Engels by Tristram Hunt( Book )

23 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Friedrich Engels is one of the most attractive and contradictory figures of the nineteenth century. Born to a prosperous mercantile family in west Germany, he spent his career working in the Manchester cotton industry, riding to the Cheshire hounds, and enjoying the comfortable, middle-class life of a Victorian gentleman. Yet Engels was also the co-founder of international communism - the philosophy which in the 20th century came to control one third of the human race. He was the co-author of The Communist Manifesto, a ruthless party tactician, and the man who sacrificed his best years so Karl Marx could write Das Kapital. Tristram Hunt relishes the diversity and exuberance of Engels's era: how one of the great bon viveurs of Victorian Britain reconciled his raucous personal life with this uncompromising political philosophy. Set against the backdrop of revolutionary Europe and industrializing England - of Manchester mills, Paris barricades, and East End strikes - it is a story of devoted friendship, class compromise, ideological struggle, and family betrayal

Civil war. 1637-1641( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Not only was the English Civil War not English, it was not even British. The troubles of the 1640s were part of a European war of religion, the Thirty Years War, during which Catholic armies took back lands Protestants had won. Charles I appeared to be a successful ruler, but religious conflicts simmered below the surface in England. Charles' wife was a French Catholic, and Charles' attempt to impose an Anglican Prayer book on the Scottish Kirk in 1637 resulted in the fiasco of the First Bishops War. Parliament refused support for a second Scottish expedition, and succeeded in jailing royal advisers Laud and Strafford. By mid-1641, the crisis seemed to have passed as Charles caved in to several Parliamentary demands, and went north to make his peace with the Scots
