The Great Conservatives: A Study of the Origins and Continuities of A British Political Tradition

Author: 

Hutchinson, Martin

Credentials: 

Historian/ Chief Economics Editor, United Press International

With a combination of robust research and coherent overview, Dr. Hutchinson argues that the origins of the Conservative Party in Britain begin with Henry Vll's attempt to define and order a Tudor solution to the chaos and civil war of the preceding century. This order is to begin a conservative political pattern: the capturing of successive revolutions by the forces of order, property and pragmaticism.

Preying on Foresaid Remains: Remembrance, Commitment and the Contexts of Irish Identity

Author: 

Greenlaw, Duncan

Credentials: 

University of Alberta

It was in 1916 that Patrick Pearse proclaimed Ireland a sovereign nation on the basis of its mourning, stating that "from the graves of patriot men and women spring living nations." The concept of creating an Irish nation as a process of mourning has been both popular and prevalent in the writing of politicians, philosophers, artists, and patriots of every kind. This book analyzes Irish literary, political, and nationalist rhetoric as works of mourning. It focuses on a series of interlocking commemorative discourses: obituaries, decommissioning talks, and hunger strike commemorations.

An Idler: John Hay’s Social and Aesthetic Commentaries for the Press During the Civil War, 1861 - 1865

Author: 

Hill, Douglas Warren

Credentials: 

Ph.D; Professor of History, University of Maryland; Foreword: Professor Helmut Relsig

John Hay’s distinguished national service began when he was Lincohn’s private secretary and continued until up to his death as Secretary of State for two presidents. For a public man under scrutiny (including numerous biographies and Henry Adam’s insightful portrait in THE EDUCATION OF HENRY ADAMS) little is known about Hay and his anonymous commentaries, reviews and critiques written during the Civil War. Dr. Hill’s new monograph remedies that situation.

Creating Political Equality: American Elections as a Public Good

Author: 

Mandle, Jay R.

Credentials: 

W. Bradford Wiley Professor of Economics, Colgate University. Author of DEMOCRACY, AMERICA and the AGE OF GLOBALIZATION(Cambridge University Press, 2008), GLOBALIZATION and the POOR(Cambridge University Press, 2003)

This study uniquely and systematically makes the argument that the electoral process in America should be considered as a public good. This argument is placed in the context of an examination of campaign funding and historical attempts at reform. It furthermore is more analytic than anything in the field in tracing the connections between our system of private funding of electoral campaigns and specific difficulties that the country has encountered with regard to the environment, health care, and the financial crisis.
