The greatest divergence of opinion in the three-month controversy over the Regency in 1788–9 was within the opposition party itself. Dr Derry shows that this political crisis was the first stage in the break-up of the old Whig party, which was finally precipitated by the disputes over the French Revolution. His book is a study of the effects of George III's madness upon Fox, Burke and the Whigs. Dr Derry sketches in the general political background, giving character studies of Pitt and Fox. He discusses the constitutional problems of a Regency and the medical diagnoses of the King's doctors, a major factor governing political conduct since so much depended on the condition of the King.
This study of the Tunisian army and government in the time of the pasha-bey Hammûda the Husaynid (1777--1814) stresses the deeply Ottoman character of these institutions and the political and administrative impact of the jurisdictional authority of the Ottoman Porte on the province in general. This work thus initiates a systematic revision of a major thesis that has prevailed in the body of contemporary research on the Tunisian Regency. Asma Moalla shows that the Regency's administrative and political evolution from the end of the sixteenth century to the end of the nineteenth was not a process of a gradual and irreversible emancipation from the influence and authority of the central Ottoman state.

'Superb' The Economist 'Elegant, entertaining and frequently surprising' New York Times The fascinating story of the Regency period in Britain - an immensely colourful and chaotic decade that marked the emergence of the modern world. The Regency began on 5 February 1811 when the Prince of Wales replaced his violently insane father George III as the sovereign de facto. It ended on 29 January 1820, when George III died and the Prince Regent became King as George IV. At the centre of the era is of course the Regent himself, who was vilified by the masses for his selfishness and corpulence. Around him surged a society defined by brilliant characters, momentous events, and stark contrasts; a society forced to confront a whole range of pressing new issues that signalled a decisive break from the past and that for the first time brought our modern world clearly into view. The Regency Revolution is the most thorough and vivid exploration of the period ever published, and it reveals the remarkably diverse ways in which the cultural, social, technological and political revolutions of this decade continue both to inspire and haunt our world.
England in the early 19th century: a place of extraordinary happenings. War on the continent and political upheavals at home buffeted the lives of ordinary people, while arts and literature flourished under the Prince Regent and a glittering group of aristocrats led high society. It was a period of tumultuous change. The twelve short stories in this book follow fictional Regency characters facing the challenges of everyday life while brushing up against momentous historical events. Young Miss Phoebe Churcham is unwittingly caught up in the assassination of the prime minister. The publication of a literary classic causes problems for Sir Aubrey Granthorpe. Imogen Rush, Dowager Marchioness of Lavington, visits with an old friend--the Regent's mistress. The tragic death of a princess touches the Newick family as it does the entire nation. And one day, foppish Postumus Enderby is inspired to take radical steps after reading the morning news. These stories and others will draw you into the private lives and wider world of Regency England. Charming costume illustrations by Shakoriel bring colour to these heroes and heroines, embellishing all twelve of Lesley-Anne McLeod's stories. The Regency Storybook is a collection of lives, loves, and histories--of a time two hundred years ago, but as vivid as yesterday.
1807: the Napoleonic Wars continue and their violence reverberates in the lives of the Morland family. Lucy trying to rebuild her life after the death of her lover, Captain Weston, is thrown into doubt and confusion by an unexpected proposal of marriage. At Morland Place, the hard-won happiness of James and Heloise is threatened by his rebellious daughter, Fanny. As heiress to the Morland estate, Fanny is determined to claim more than her inheritance, but for those dependent on her generosity, Fanny's decision to marry the unscrupulous Lieutenant Hawker brings only anxiety. These troubled times hold many surprises, and in their darkest hour the Morlands make an astonishing discovery which enables them to face the uncertain future with new strength.

From New York Times bestselling romance author Kasey Michaels comes the third in her LOVE IN THE REGENCY series. There are not many men who can say they attended their own funeral, but Brady James, Earl of Singleton is no ordinary man. He’s also, happily, not a dead man, which he is certain was the object of the trio of scoundrels who had lately tied him up and tossed him headfirst into the Thames. Of course, there’s also the matter of why he’d been skulking about the bowels of London after midnight, and her name is Regina Bliss. Mysterious, with an ability to lie that would shame the devil himself, Regina is a recent rescue from the London streets, and Brady has taken it into his head to find out where the dratted girl came from… and why she bothers him so. To accomplish his aim, Brady needs to return to London, but certainly not as himself (that would be awkward), and he needs the irritating Miss Bliss to come with him. What to do? Why, he could pretend to be his own heir — a totally worthless, chuckleheaded moron of a dandy he’d rather die (again) to keep from the earldom. It could work. It should work. If only he could get past his attraction for Miss Bliss as she, horror of horrors, teaches him how to play the fop. **For a limited time, get two free books from Kasey > bit.ly/kaseymichaels (just copy and paste into your browser)**
In this book W. O. Henderson has brought together in English translation the journals of four foreign visitors who travelled in England and Scotland in the years immediately following the Napoleonic wars, in a way which may be regarded as a sequel to his recent book on J. C. Fischer’s diaries of industrial Britain. Two of the travellers whose journals are included in this volume were Swiss industrialists. Hans Caspar Escher was both a professional architect and the founder of the famous engineering firm of Esther Wyss of Zürich, Bodmer, also of Zürich, lived in England for many years and was recognised as an inventor of genius. The other accounts of industrial Britain in the Regency era are a report by the Prussian Factory Commissioner May and a short survey of the Newcastle upon Tyne colliery railways by the French government engineer Louis de Gallois. The four diaries show how informed foreign visitors were impressed by the way in which Britain had survived the perils of Napoleon’s Continental System and was now forging ahead to consolidate her position as the workshop of the world. This book was first published in 1968.
His family slaughtered in far-off China, young Jacob Cato finds sanctuary in a Xi Lin temple. There he heals and learns to be strong. Now, Jacob wishes to join his care-takers as a full member of the temple and is told he must first return to his homeland and make peace with his English inheritance. At Evelyn Stanton’s lavish wedding, the bald-headed Chinese monk striding down the center aisle is shocking. Watching that man dispatch three groomsmen, unarmed, then learning he is the long-lost heir to the Earldom of Warhaven and the new groom, is even more so. But Evelyn Stanton isn't the typical blushing bride. A fully realized woman, she isn't about to marry the very non-English Jacob Cato just because she was betrothed to him when she was six. At the sight of the very beautiful and very English Evelyn Stanton, Jacob's body burns with an unexpected passion as the past he thought forgotten takes new form. The murderer who slaughtered his family and left him for dead will pay. His lawful English heritage will be claimed and he will have the woman who is rightfully his.

The London rookeries are slums, rife with criminals, and shunned by the upper crust. But someone there intends to murder one of England's greatest leaders, and Marcus Kane, Lord Chadwick, will follow every clue, even into the bowels of London's underground. But he can't find his way alone. A partner is required. Fantine (Fanny) Delarive is perfect. She knows the slums better any, has survived its labyrinth alone for years, and knows every criminal lurking in every dark corner. Then, the investigation detours the pair into the bright ballrooms of the ton. And Fantine fits in here, too. Which changes everything. Lord Chadwick knows a woman of Fantine's ilk is entirely unsuitable for him. But she's infinitely more exciting than any well-born lady he's ever met. Now much more than an acquaintance with the independent, self-reliant Fantine is required... and it must end with nothing less than marriage.
