Britain PALGRAVE MACMILLAN

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This volume offers an introduction to the fundamental social, political and economic changes that took place in Great Britain from the late-18th century to the present day. In his study of this period, Pugh explores the major factors governing and determining events and asks: how and why did Britain reach her peak as a great industrial power by 1850? what has been the nature and extent of economic decline since the late Victorian period? how, as violent, revolutionary change swept across Europe, did the aristocratic British political system give way to mass democracy with scarcely a protest? and how did Britain manage to acquire a huge empire in the 19th century while investing so little in her armed forces? Using historical research, the author presents an accessible, concise and yet wide-ranging analysis of the factors that shape Britain. His study culminates in an evaluation of Britain's dilemmas at the end of the 20th century following the collapse of consensus politics, the rejection of Thatcherism, the emergence of New Labour and the reappraisal of Britain's relationship with Europe.

Seminar paper from the year 2013 in the subject English - Discussion and Essays, grade: 2-, , language: English, comment: Dies ist ein Erweiterter Leistungsnachweis (Facharbeit) aus der 11. Klasse im Fach Englisch. Es war ein Leistungskurs Fach auf erhöhtem Niveau und es wurde mit einer 2- (10 Notenpunkte) gewertet. , abstract: Great Britain is an important country in the world. Everyone knows it and has already heard about it. But it has a very extensive history, which is not acquainted to everybody. In this work I can not explain the entire historical development of Great Britain, I have to restrict it to the history of death penalty, but there will be some connections to historical events.§Today, the death penalty is no longer practiced in Great Britain. But in former times it was usual that the death was set to a normal punishment for different kinds of crime. Until the 1950s it was a tradition to kill the law-breakers. The peak of the death penalty in Great Britain was the 18th century. At this time, there were over 200 offenses which were punishable by death. Often the judge decided if the offender is guilty or not. Since 1861 the offenses were limited to slayer, high treason, piracy and arson. Additional since 1868 the executions were no longer for public. A commission, which was selected by the government, wrote a report about the pro and contra of the death penalty. Because of this report, death penalty was now only punished for a heavier murder, for example when a police officer was killed in service.

Three Victories and a Defeat Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This highly original, extremely enjoyable book tells the story of Britain's extraordinary scramble to world power in the 18th century and how, through hubris and incompetence, it lost almost everything it had gained. Whilst Britain was an important European power, few would have expected her global preeminence by 1760, but as Brendan Simms shows with great flair and originality, Britain had a crucial card to play. It was the joining of the British crown to Hanover that gave Britain two empires: one scattered around the world and another - the more important of the two - firmly locked into Germany. Having created a new empire Britain then spectacularly lost it, this time because of its chaotic failure to maintain its European alliances. This is an epic and often unexpected story, and Simms tells it brilliantly.

Age of Wonder Harper Collins

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Winner of the Royal Society Prize for Science Books. Shortlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize. Richard Holmes, prize-winning biographer of Coleridge and Shelley, explores the scientific ferment that swept across Britain at the end of 18th century in this ground-breaking new biography . 'The Age of Wonder' is Richard Holmes's first major work of biography in over a decade. It has been inspired by the scientific ferment that swept through Britain at the end of the eighteenth century, which Holmes now radically redefines as 'the revolution of Romantic Science'. The book opens with Joseph Banks stepping onto a Tahitian beach in 1796, hoping to discover Paradise. The young botanist had set sail in search of new worlds - inspired by the Romantic revolution of science that was sweeping through Britain. Banks goes on to introduce us to William Herschel, whose groundbreaking dedication to the stars forever changed the public conception of the solar system, and Humphry Davy, whose creation of the Safety Lamp went on to save thousands of lives. These are just a few of the lives covered in this remarkable work in which Holmes charts the many voyages of discovery - astronomical, chemical, poetical, philosophical - that made up this 'age of wonder'. From telescopic sight to miner's lamp, and from the first balloon flight to African exploration, it tells the stories of great innovations, and the inspired individuals behind them.

What the Industrial Revolution Did for Us BBC

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The latest in the popular What theDid For Us series of books, What the Industrial Revolution Did For Us is a journey back in time, giving the reader an insight into how British life was transformed between 1750 and 1830, and how it shaped the world we live in today. So what did the Industrial Revolution do for us? Without the huge advances in science, engineering and medicine and the cast of extraordinarily colourful inventors and scientists who revolutionised the way we think, our modern world would be very different. We would be without vaccinations against contagious diseases and have no anaesthetics for surgery. The industrial revolution also gave birth to our national obsession with tea drinking, the mass production of crockery for the house-proud newly emerging Middle Classes and the transformation of clothing worn by the ordinary man and woman. As well as huge leaps in the evolution of machinery and manufacturing, our transport system was completely overhauled as the first ever steam trains emerged, roads were drastically improved, and canal mania took over Britain. The great industrial cities burgeoned and London became the international power it still is today. From the quacks advertising their potions to the new Middle Classes to the great innovators and entrepreneurs such as Robert Stephenson, James Watt and Josiah Wedgwood, What the Industrial Revolution Did For Us takes us right to the heart of the excitement of this revolutionary age. This book and the BBC television series it accompanies takes us back in time in the eyes of the eighteenth century tourist embracing the newness and invention of this incredible era. Contents: Introduction by Dan Cruickshank Chapter 1: A Potent Brew Chapter 1 looks at the remarkable discoveries that, in just 100 years, created the modern global economy and much of the world in which we live. It tells the story of coal and iron, but also of tea, the invention of the toaster and how Kew Gardens came to be formed. Chapter 2: New Lives: New Landscapes How industrialisation changed the face of modern Britain with the development of machines that took work out of the home and into factories. Chapter 3: Steaming Along We travel through the longest tunnels, over the highest bridges and in the first ever steam trains to explore the impact of the Industrial Revolution on the way we get from A to B. Chapter 4: The Lure of London From the architecture of London to the development of shopping and the start of the modern consumer society. Chapter 5: A Remedy for Quacks Up until the mid 18th century, you had a better chance of survival if you chose not to visit a doctor. But these rather grim facts of life and death were about to change. The Industrial Revolution brought the hope that technology and progress might produce a world without disease and suffering. Modern Medicine covers everything from anaesthetic to Scurvy, vaccines to madness. Chapter 6: Cannon-Fire This chapter focuses on the developments taking place in warfare and weapons during this turbulent period.

Research Paper (Pre-University) from the year 2013 in the subject Sociology - Economy and Industry, grade: 12, , language: English, abstract: Made in Germany , the Industrial Revolution , and Industrial Espionage : what do these terms have in common? Industrial Revolution describes a transition from an agrarian to an industrial society at the end of the 18th century, starting in Great Britain and spreading from there. ) Whether railroad or steam engine, the technical innovations of the 18th century profoundly changed the working style and lifestyle of the people. Technical innovations went hand in hand with organizational innovations, such as the introduction of a factory system which ultimately put in motion a trans-formation process - now called the Industrial Revolution. The Industrial Revolu-tion is one of the most significant turning points in history. There is no other known event in which, within such a short period, a centuries-old agrarian soci-ety was turned upside down and, within a few decades, something new was created. §The starting point is considered to be the development of the spinning machine by Richard Arkwright in the summer of 1769, creating industrial cotton process-ing in textile centers in England, as well as the invention of the steam engine by James Watt. Within a short time, new inventions hit the market almost continu-ously -- inventions that changed life significantly. At that time, England was the leading force with the majority of the inventions having their origins there. Across Europe, people admired England with its ideas and inventions.§First inventions were made in Germany as well, where they quickly began to copy, rebuild, and sell English products in England. In a targeted manner, Eng-land s advanced manufacturing processes were spied on by Germany, copied, and sold on the English market, initially mostly were of poor quality. This signifi-cantly impacted the English producers, and soon political and legal measures against the copiers were requested.

Excerpt from William of Germany William The Second, German Emperor and King of Prussia, Burgrave of Nűrnberg, Margrave of Brandenburg, Landgrave of Hessen and Thuringia, Prince of Orange, Knight of the Garter and Field-Marshal of Great Britain, etc., was born in Berlin on January 27, 1859, and ascended the throne on June 15, 1888. He is, therefore, fifty-four years old in the present year of his Jubilee, 1913, and his reign - happily yet unfinished - has extended over a quarter of a century. The Englishman who would understand the Emperor and his time must imagine a country with a monarchy, a government, and a people - in short, a political system - almost entirely different from his own. In Germany, paradoxical though it may sound to English ears, there is neither a government nor a people. The word "government" occurs only once in the Imperial Constitution, the Magna Charta of modern Germans, which in 1870 settled the relations between the Emperor and what the Englishman calls the "people," and then only in an unimportant context joined to the word "federal."

Brief History of British Sea Power Robinson Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The British did not take to water like ducks, for centuries doing little but cling to coastal waters. The Romans and Vikings knocked spots of us as seamen, and the English upper classes saw seafaring as mercantile and beneath them. Britain's success at sea began with Elizabeth I and the defeat of the Armada, thanks to superior gunnery and seamanship. Elizabeth employed practical seamen like Hawkins and Drake - and they repaid her trust. Howarth reconstructs the expansion of trade routes and the great 18th century days of the line of battle ships. With Napoleon's fall, the British were free to expand, and their prestige rose so high that sea warfare almost ceased as British ships patrolled the oceans. In the 20th century, the British navy was twice as big as any other. Full of anecdote, erudition and humour, this is a classic account.

Awake Sweet Love, an Anthology of Lute Music Brilliant Classics

Nagrania muzyczneMuzyka poważna

Drawing together various previous releases from the Brilliant Classics collection, this compendium pays tribute to an instrument that was once at the forefront of everyday music making, tracing its extensive and highly fruitful career.The lute counts among its writers some of the greatest names in music history, and indeed the anthology contains a large corpus of music by John Dowland -- one of Britain's most prolific Renaissance composers. His extraordinary varied music is accompanied by the likes of Henry Purcell, who rounds of the compilation, and by Johann Sebastian Bach, whose lute offerings represent the florid repertoire of the courtly salon music then in vogue. Interspersed between these big names, however, is a rich catalogue of works that are the missing links to understanding the development of lute music and of music in general; while Miguel Yisrael's Les Baricades Mistérieuses programme recalls the dominance of the French school during the 17th century, Germany appears to have taken over as the new centre of European lute music by the mid-18th century, as evidenced by the rich culture of music making at the court of Bayreuth (CD12). Here a more galant, or cantabile expression of music was developing, and in Austria, too, lute music -- particularly the lute trio -- was seen as a precursor to the emergence of Viennese Classicism and the establishment of the new Empfindsamer style.The collection contains a wealth of lutenists, all of whom are at the top of their profession and enjoy international careers. Guaranteed to provide hours of engaging listening, this release records an essential but often-overlooked facet of music history and is a must-buy for anyone with an interest in string repertoire.Other information:- Recorded in 1988--2012.- A substantial and rewarding Anthology of lute music, the only serious set in the market.- The lute, with its gentle, soothing and melancholy string timbre, has touched many a heart string in its long history. It was an instrument of courtship and many love songs were accompanied by the sonorous tones of the lute. Great composers wrote extensively for the instrument, and this set contains the complete works of the master of the genre: John Dowland, as well as the complete lute works of Johann Sebastian Bach, works of de Visée, Kapsberger and other major and Minor masters.- Excellent performances by the world's top luteists, including: Jakob Lindberg, Miguel Yisrael, Nigel North, Christopher Wilson and others, having won many international record awards (among others a Diapason d'Or).- Contains extensive notes on the music and composers.

Palladio TASCHEN

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This is the classical Roman revivalist. With this introduction to the work of Andrea Palladio (1508-1580), TASCHEN's "Basic Architecture" series shines its spotlight on one of the most influential figures in the history of Western architecture. Palladio's 'Villa Rotonda' in Vicenza became the most famous building of its kind; it influenced many later designs and remains an important source of inspiration for today's architects. The Palladian style, distinguished by the typical Serlian windows, pillared facades resembling Roman temples, symmetrical floor plans, and elevations, was imported to other European countries and became widely known; in Great Britain it was one the important roots of 17th and 18th century architecture. In the 19th century, American architecture heavily referred to the style, as seen in, for example, Thomas Jefferson's Monticello home. Every book in TASCHEN's "Basic Architecture" series features: approximately 120 images, including photographs, sketches, drawings, and floor plans; introductory essays exploring the architect's life and work, touching on family and background as well as collaborations with other architects; the most important works presented in chronological order, with descriptions of client and/or architect wishes as well as construction problems and resolutions; and, an appendix including a list of complete or selected works, biography, bibliography and a map indicating the locations of the architect's most famous buildings.
