Great Britain in Colour

  • Categories: Art

Discover a Great Britain unlike any you've ever seen before! Acclaimed illustrator, graphic designer and print-maker, Paul Farrell takes us on a journey through Great Britain that will change the way we think about it forever. Encompassing its countryside, landmarks, and architecture, from the Highlands of Scotland, to the White Cliffs of Dover, the beautiful and bold images in Great Britain in Colour are vibrant, playful and iconic. By taking a less-travelled path through our history and landscape, he also invites us to re-think what makes something quintessentially British, showing us new ways of looking at the familiar and uncovering hidden gems. What he reveals is a country rich in tradition, beauty and steeped in history, yet also vivid and alive with energy, all celebrated here in brilliant colour.

This is a timely exploration of national identity in Great Britain over nine hundred years of history. Our attitudes to the nation state are changing - national assemblies in Scotland and Wales and growing pressures for regional assemblies. In his vigorous new survey, Professor Robbins provides the background to these changing attitudes. He considers the development as well as the possible disintegration of the sense of "Britishness" among the inhabitants of Britain and investigates how - and why - they have preserved their own national and regional identities across several centuries of co-existence. Keith Robbins is Vice Chancellor of the University of Wales Lampeter. Among his many books, Longman has also published his highly successful study The Eclipse of a Great Power: Modern Britain 1870-1992 (Second Edition 1994). He is also General Editor of Longman's famous series ofProfiles in Power, with over 20 titles already in print and many more in preparation.

The Legislative Process in Great Britain

  • Publisher: Routledge

Originally published in 1968, this book deals with the process of public legislation in modern Britain at the time, not in terms of constitutional formulae, but by a realistic appraisal of the relationships between the political institutions and forces which gave the process its shape. It concentrates particularly on the procedures and conventions which operated at the preparatory stages of legislation, and established that legislation was almost exclusively a governmental function, Parliament playing only a minor role. It is particularly concerned to stress the extent to which consultation by the government with pressure groups was now a major feature of the legislative process, and concludes that subordinate departmental legislation, developed as a result of collaboration between pressure groups and Civil Servants, was the most characteristic and important stage of the legislative process in Britain. The book brought together the conclusions of recent scholarship in this field, and the result is a balanced perspective of an important decision-making process of British government at the time. Today it can be read in its historical context.

The relations of Great Britain and its Dominions significantly influenced the development of the British Empire in the late 19th and the first third of the 20th century. The mutual attitude to the constitutional issues that Dominion and British leaders have continually discussed at Colonial and Imperial Conferences respectively was one of the main aspects forming the links between the mother country and the autonomous overseas territories. This volume therefore focuses on the key period when the importance of the Dominions not only increased within the Empire itself, but also in the sphere of the international relations, and the Dominions gained the opportunity to influence the forming of the Imperial foreign policy. During the first third of the 20th century, the British Empire gradually transformed into the British Commonwealth of Nations, in which the importance of Dominions excelled. The work is based on the study of unreleased sources from British archives, a large number of published documents and extensive relevant literature.
