British Politics 1910 1935 from the Author: David Powell. This accessible 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 reappraisal of the main personalities, themes and events of the period, David Powell brings clarity to this crucial yet complex period. Examining British politics on the eve of war, David Powell assesses the impact of war on the parties and the political system and the process of realignment that followed in the interwar period. In particular he analyzes to what extent these events as a whole constituted a crisis of the party system. From the structure of the Edwardian political system and the party politics of pre-war Britain, through to the economic and political crisis of 1931 and the subsequent rebuilding of the party system, this comprehensive analysis offers an indispensable survey to all students of British history or politics.

Corruption In British Politics 1895 1930 from the Author: Geoffrey Russell Searle. Parliamentary political life in the Edwardian period was generally thought to be remarkably free from corruption; yet suspicions of wrongdoing in high places gathered momentum as the century progressed. This first major study of corruption and scandal in British politics in the early 20th century examines the rumors, innuendos, and accusations which affected the reputation of politicians and political parties, and undermined confidence in the integrity of public life. Setting the era's scandalous events--wartime profiteering, the abuse of patronage, the Marconi Affair, and the Honours Scandal of 1922, which helped ruin the career of Lloyd George--in the context of the beliefs and values of the time, this book reassesses the assumptions, prejudices, and aspirations of an entire political generation.

Gokhale from the Author: Bal Ram Nanda. In this full biography of Gopal Krishna Gokhale reassesses the Indian political scene during the last decades of the nineteenth century and the first decade of the twentieth. In focusing on the career of the preeminent leader of his time, B. R. Nanda surveys the Indian Nationalist movement during the years 1885-1915 and especially the developments within the Indian National Congress. The author's clear account of Indo-British relations spans the administrations of Lords Curzon, Minto, and Hardinge. Through vignettes of eminent Indian contemporaries, insights into attitudes of officials, and vividly described popular reactions to British policies, he captures the spirit of India's political life at the turn of the century. B. R. Nanda interweaves his discussion of Gokhale's ideas and actions with analysis of major events of the day. He considers the ferment in Maharashtra, the social reform movement, the conflict between Moderates and Extremists in the Indian National Congress, the crisis in the Punjab in 1907, and many other important topics. His book gives rare glimpses of two great friends of India, A. O. Hume and William Wedderburn. Materials from Indian as well as British sources illuminate the pre-Gandhian phase of the conflict between British imperialism and Indian nationalism. Originally published in 1977.
