Britain's Declining Empire
37,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

An authoritative political history of one of the world's most important empires on the road to decolonisation. Ronald Hyam offers a major reassessment of the end of empire which combines a study of British policymaking with case studies on the experience of decolonization across Africa, Asia and the Caribbean. He describes the dysfunctional policies of an imperial system coping with postwar, interwar and wartime crises from 1918 to 1945 but the main emphasis is on the period after 1945 and the gradual unravelling of empire as a result of international criticism, and the growing imbalance between Britain's capabilities and its global commitments. He analyses the transfers of power from India in 1947 to Swaziland in 1968, the major crises such as Suez and assesses the role of leading figures from Churchill, Attlee and Eden to Macmillan and Wilson. This is essential reading for scholars and students of empire and decolonisation.

Les Deplorables: How the Tea Party Put Trump in...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Les Deplorables focuses upon Donald Trump's third revolutionary effort to dismantle Franklin Roosevelt's new deal programs of big government that have dominated America since the depression of the 1930s. The first effort was Ronald Reagan's Moral Majority counterrevolution from 1980-89. The second attempt was led by Newt Gingrich's 1994 Contract with America and Republican control of Congress in the 1990s. This book explains the third American revolution in the aftermath of the Tea Party's victory in the 2016 election. The leader of the revolution, Donald J. Trump, can aptly be described as the Tea Party President of the United States. Despite winning the presidency, however, the Tea Party is engaged in a battle with establishment Republican (RINOs) for control of Congress and the media. The outcome of this contest will determine the success of the Trump revolution. If Trump's presidency is successful in carrying out his Tea Party agenda, Franklin Roosevelt's big government regime will end. Accompanying this revolutionary change will be a realignment of the party system that will likely overthrow the Democrats and make the Republicans the dominant political party under Tea Party leadership. Trump's Tea Party coalition, therefore, threatens the political establishment of both major parties, Wall Street, social elites, and the federal bureaucracy. This fits the classic definition of a revolution in which citizens overthrow the ruling elite. It is comparable to the American Revolutionary War of the 18th Century in which the founders of the new American Republic defeated the most powerful ruling elite in the world - the British Empire. 1.

Mamo!
20,90 CHF *

MAMO! Is the riveting biography of Dame Mary Eugenia Charles, Prime Minister of Dominica. Mamo, was the popular nickname given Charles by islanders who she led with stern resolve for fifteen years. The work provides insight into the life of one of the leading figures in Caribbean history and one of the most notable females to ever to lead any country in recent times. The product of a 1996 interview and notes from thirteen years of interaction with Dominican born attorney and community leader Gabriel Christian, the book begins with a splendid introduction by Justice Irving Andre (PhD) - a Canadian jurist and legal scholar who has become the preeminent biographer of Dominica s leaders of the modern era. The work spotlights Dame Charles early life in Dominica; her father s involvement in the local legislator and the politics of Caribbean nationalism. We witness her encounter with racism, and resistance to segregation laws, while travelling through the southern United States of the Jim Crow era while on her way to law school at the University of Toronto; her days at law school under famed Canadian legal scholar Bora Laskin is detailed. Upon her return to Dominica, Eugenia Charles becomes the first Dominican female lawyer. In this work we read of her founding the Dominica Freedom Party and how she was later catapulted into power by a land slide electoral victory in July 1980, after the ravages of civil strife and the devastation of Hurricane David in 1979 had sent Dominica reeling. Born in 1919 to a striving middle class family, Miss Charles tells of her father, John Baptiste JB Charles, an equally amazing figure who travelled the world in the early 1900s and agitated for political representation for Dominicans and British West Indian Federation. A closet follower of Marcus Garvey s UNIA, Miss Charles father grew wealthy by virtue of hard work, thrift and industry; he exported limes and lime oil and becoming the first black man to open a bank on the island of Dominica. He also corresponded with Booker T. Washington and famed African American scientist Dr. George Washington Carver; sent his first son at age 12 to study under Carver at Tuskegee Institute and Morehouse College; both his sons Rennie and Lawrence - later becoming physicians after graduating from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. Miss Charles relates that her only sister, Jane, became a nun, after rejecting her father s efforts to have her enter the field of science. Inspired by a strong willed mother, Josephine, and a visionary father, Miss Charles became the first female head of government in the America s - and the first black female Prime Minister of the modern era. In her usual blunt, yet charmingly colorful style, we learn of her role in the US invasion of Grenada on October 25, 1983 when allied with US President Ronald Reagan. She describes how, through tough decisions and shrewd tactics, she defeated two attempts to topple her regime by her own Defence Force and Ku Klux Klan mercenaries. Of conservative hue, Eugenia Charles ruled Dominica from 1980 to 1995 with a degree of tough pragmatism, from the political center. In the waning days of the Cold War she sought alliances with which to advance programs of equal access to education, health care and assistance to farmers. For her sterling leadership to the cause of the British Commonwealth, Eugenia Charles was knighted a Dame Commander of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth, II in 1991. Though dead since 2005, her heroic image as The Iron Lady still looms large in the popular memory. In this book, the Grand Dame of Caribbean politics reveals her life in stark detail for the first time; and she emerges as a symbol of integrity in office for those who value governance in the public interest.

The Hill and Wang Critical Issues Series: concise, affordable works on pivotal topics in American history, society, and politics. Stephanson explores the origins of Manifest Destiny--the American idea of providential and historical chosenness--and shows how and why it has been invoked over the past three hundred years. He traces the roots of Manifest Destiny from the British settlement of North America and the rise of Puritanism through Woodrow Wilson's efforts to 'make the world safe for democracy' and Ronald Reagan's struggle against the 'evil empire' of the Soviet Union. The result is a remarkable and necessary book about how faith in divinely ordained expansionism has marked the course of American history.
