The Conservative Party From Peel To Major from the Author: Robert Blake. There was no more appropriate person to write this book. Robert Blake was the doyen of Tory historians being most famous for his unsurpassed biography of Disraeli (to be reissued in Faber Finds). His history of the Conservative Party was first published in 1970. It then went as far as Churchill. A subsequent edition took it up to Thatcher and the final edition, the one being reissued by Faber Finds, to Major. For the span it covers, it remains the definitive one-volume history. 'His consummate insight into the whole of the political scene, and his power to communicate the enjoyment of it, makes this exciting reading for anyone remotely interested in British political and social history, or even in the English character.' Sunday Times 'This book is full of insights and enriched throughout by sparkling commentary' Evening Standard 'An up-to-date history of the Party was wanted. Mr Blake supplies it with lucidity, scholarship and serene worldliness' Guardian

Conservative Suffragists from the Author: Mitzi Auchterlonie. As the suffragette movement was becoming increasingly militant what was the Conservative reaction to successive parliamentary bills on women’s suffrage and what was the level of support for votes for women within the Tory party?_x000D_ After the 1867 Reform Bill, Conservatives were hesitant about supporting further measures to widen the franchise. Although a few party members supported John Stuart Mill’s proposal for women’s suffrage, and some notable individual Conservative women were part of the early organised campaigns for female enfranchisement, the period before the 1880s saw little interest in this issue among the party faithful. It was only when the grassroots Primrose League was created in 1883 that the suffrage question was taken up by a number of its women members. _x000D_ _x000D_ One of the most significant gaps in our knowledge of the British women’s suffrage movement is how the Conservative Party dealt with this controversial issue. In this important reassessment of Conservative women’s suffrage, Mitzi Auchterlonie looks at the political activities of Conservative women between 1867 and 1914. As the campaigning by the women’s suffrage societies intensified and became more militant, Conservative suffragists responded by founding the Conservative and Unionist Women’s Franchise Association (CUWFA) in 1908. This became the third largest women’s suffrage party of the pre-World War One period. Auchterlonie looks at the activities of this organisation and its publication 'The Conservative & Unionist Women’s Franchise Review' in depth, enabling readers to understand the social, political, economic and imperial issues which most concerned Conservative suffragists. Auchterlonie charts their campaigning activities at local and national level using primary sources including memoirs of prominent Conservative supporters of women’s suffrage. She discusses the relationship between the CUWFA and politicians of all parties as well as their links with other suffrage organisations. Auchterlonie concludes that Conservative women, dismissed by some as marginal to suffrage history, played a significant part in the suffrage campaigns, while the party itself contained an unexpectedly diverse range of views towards the idea of votes for women. _x000D_

Beatrix Potter from the Author: M. Daphne Kutzer. Beatrix Potter was one of the inventors of the contemporary picture book, and her small novels published at the turn of the twentieth century are still available and popular today. Writing in Code is the first book-length study of Potter's work, and it covers the entire oeuvre, examining all facets of her work in relation to her private life. Daphne Kutzer reveals the depth of the symbolism in Potter’s work and relates this to the issues of the author's own development as an independent woman and writer, and her struggles with domesticity, Unitarianism, and the socio-political issues in late-19th and early-20th century England. Weaving the subtle themes inscribed in Potter's own stories with the concerns and temperament of the author who wrote them, Kutzer exemplifies literary criticism as it can illuminate the breadth of allusion in children's literature.
