Описание: The period from the late eighteenth century to the first part of the nineteenth century was characterised by change: rapid industrial change, the agricultural revolution, political, economic and social reform. Yet there was also continuity, which led to tensions between improvement and resistance, modernity and tradition, rich and poor.
Revolution, Radicalism and Reform provides a foundation for the study of the political, economic and social developments of the period. Topics covered include: Pitt and Liverpool, the French wars, the age of Peel, economy and industrialisation, poverty and Chartism.
Revolution, Radicalism and Reform is part of the Cambridge Perspectives in History series. The book matches the requirements of the OCR examination specifications. It is suitable for all Advanced Subsidiary (AS) students, as well as students and undergraduates needing an introduction to the period. The book also contains a document study section on the condition of England at that time.

Описание: Providing an account of the development of democracy in Britain, this book starts from the "unreformed" political system before 1832 to the Parliamentary Reform Acts passed between 1832 and 1918, with the extension of the franchise, the secret ballot and the elimination of corrupt practices.
Описание: As the United States transitioned from a rural nation to an urbanized, industrial giant between the War of 1812 and the early twentieth century, ordinary people struggled over the question of what it meant to be American. As Brian Roberts shows in `Blackface Nation`, this struggle is especially evident in popular culture and the interplay between two specific strains of music: middle-class folk and blackface minstrelsy. The Hutchinson Family Singers, the Northeast`s most popular middle-class singing group during the mid-nineteenth century, are perhaps the best example of the first strain of music. The group`s songs expressed an American identity rooted in communal values, with lyrics focusing on abolition, women`s rights, and socialism. Blackface minstrelsy, on the other hand, emerged out of an audience-based coalition of Northern business elites, Southern slaveholders, and young, white, working-class men, for whom blackface expressed an identity rooted in individual self-expression, anti-intellectualism, and white superiority. Its performers embodied the love-crime version of racism, in which vast swaths of the white public adored African Americans who fit blackface stereotypes even as they used those stereotypes to rationalize white supremacy. By the early twentieth century, the blackface version of the American identity had become a part of America`s consumer culture while the Hutchinsons` songs were increasingly regarded as old-fashioned.
Описание: The second half of the twentieth century saw the emergence of international economic law as a major force in the international legal system. This force has been severely tested by the economic crisis of 2008. Unable to prevent the crisis, the existing legal mechanisms have struggled to react against its direst consequences. This book brings together leading experts to analyse the main causes of the crisis and the role that international economic law has played in trying to prevent it, on the one hand, and worsening it, on the other. The work highlights the reaction and examines the tools that have been created by the international legal field to implement international cooperation in an effort to help put an end to the crisis and avoid similar events in the future. The volume brings together eminent legal academics and economists to examine key issues from the perspectives of trade law, financial law, and investment law with the collective aim of reform of international economic governance.
Описание: Protest, Reform and Repression in Khrushchev's Soviet Union explores the nature of political protest in the USSR during the decade following the death of Stalin. Using sources drawn from the archives of the Soviet Procurator's office, the Communist Party, the Komsomol and elsewhere, Hornsby examines the emergence of underground groups, mass riots and public attacks on authority as well as the ways in which the Soviet regime under Khrushchev viewed and responded to these challenges, including deeper KGB penetration of society and the use of labour camps and psychiatric repression. He sheds important new light on the progress and implications of de-Stalinization, the relationship between citizens and authority and the emergence of an increasingly materialistic social order inside the USSR. This is a fascinating study which significantly revises our understanding of the nature of Soviet power following the abandonment of mass terror.

Описание: A Century of Constitutional Reform is a detailed study of major constitutional legislation in the United Kingdom enacted over the last century since the passage of the Parliament Act 1911. The book encompasses Acts that have served to reshape the constitutional landscape of the nation. It also takes a comprehensive look at the major constitutional landmarks that have shaped the relationship between the following: the two Houses of Parliament (the Parliament Act 1911, the House of Lords Act 1999); the different regions of the United Kingdom (the Scotland Act 1998); the UK and the rest of Europe (the European Communities Act 1972); Parliament and the people (the Representation of the People Act 1918), and the state and the individual (the Human Rights Act 1998). It focuses especially on the measures passed in the period since 1970 which have served to challenge the basic structure of the Westminster model of government, and which some commentators believe has heralded a new constitution for the United Kingdom. Contributions throughout the book are written by specialists in the field, and Lord Norton is an acknowledged expert on British constitutional legislation. As such, he is ideally placed to edit this fascinating and timely volume.
