The Irish boundary crisis and the reshaping of British politics, 1920-1925

Matthews, Charles Kevin January 2000 (has links)
This thesis investigates the interaction between the evolution of the Irish Question and the re-emergence of Britain's two-party political system after World War I. It challenges the contention summed up in A.J.P. Taylor's suggestion that David Lloyd George 'conjured' the Irish Question out of existence with the Anglo-Irish Treaty of 1921. Here, it is shown that on the contrary the Irish dispute continued to be a highly sensitive issue for successive British governments until the Treaty's Boundary Commission report was shelved in 1925. This was so because British politics was then undergoing a profound revolution. Its climax was the 1924 general election, which established the Conservatives as the dominant players in British politics, ensured Labour's place as the leading party of the left, and confirmed the eclipse of Liberalism. The first of this study's two aims is to set the Irish dispute within this wider context. Specifically, it examines how the answer to the Irish Question that was devised by Lloyd George and his Coalition partners was constructed and then dismantled as a result of this revolution. The second aim of this thesis is to demonstrate that the Boundary Commission was only one element in the Treaty's Ulster clauses, all of which were designed to bring about Ireland's re-unification. The intent was to exploit the financial restrictions of the 1920 Government of Ireland Act and thus pressure Ulster Unionists into joining a single Irish Parliament. This aspect has been overlooked in other studies, though it posed as serious a threat to Northern Ireland's survival as the Commission itself.

Monuments to the fallen : Scottish war memorials of the Great War

Bell, Gilbert Torrance January 1993 (has links)
This study attempts to place the war memorials of the Great War within, not only a Scottish, but an international and historical context. Monuments reflect power and prestige as well as demonstrate artistic skill. They are symbols with meanings and expressions of values but while they last the values which they represent change. Their evolution also mirrors changing attitudes to life and death. Monuments to victories and the victorious have given way to those which more democratically commemorate all the Fallen. Cenotaphs have come to be erected at home in memory of those buried elsewhere. Glasgow provides ample illustration of how commemorative art has evolved - from memorials in the Cathedral and its Burial Ground to those in the city itself, from private memorials in the Necropolis to public monuments in public places and from monuments to individuals to memorials to many. The memorials erected in the aftermath of the Great War are monuments of their age. Intended to express enduring values, with death for 'King and Country' seen as sacrifice, they were a focus for collective grief as well as comunity pride. The inscriptions which transform monuments into memorials are value-laden statements - even if we no longer accept these values. The events of their unveiling days reveal many of the hopes and fears of their creators for they allowed an orgy of patriotism to coalesce with the needs of bereavement. Over and above their social and socialising role memorials had an economic consequence and artistic result. In their day they mattered even if we do not now "remember". Memorials now lack care and cease to have meaning due to changed values. Memorials of a new genre - peace monuments - are a response to new needs. Comemorative art is a continuing process even if the actual art of monument making changes little and old monuments need new respect if they are to survive in a new world.

The earls in Henry the Second's reign

Latimer, Paul January 1982 (has links)
The object of the thesis is to provide a total picture of the earls in Henry II's reign. Chapter One looks at the history of earldoms in England, before and after the Norman conquerors brought with them Carolingian and Norman traditions of local government. Chapter Two examines the duties, rights and perquisites of the earls as local officials, how their position changed in the course of the eleventh and early twelfth centuries, and how, except in certain special cases, their practical role as local officials became insignificant early in Henry Ins reign. Chapter Three looks at various aspects of the lives of Henry II I s earls: their constant travelling; their residences; their military lifestyle and culture, and their religion. Chapter Four describes the complex structure of the earls' honours, and the financial and administrative problems that the earls faced. Chapters Five and Six examine the relationship between the earls and royal government. Chapter Five looks at the role of the earls in central government, both as individuals and as a group, the impact on the earls of royal justice and the increasing dependence of the earls on a favourable position at the royal court. Chapter Six deals specifically with taxation: the role of the earls in forming taxation policy; the impact of taxes on the earls, and the growing dependence of taxation on individual feudal and political relationships between king and subject. Chapter Seven examines the revolt against Henry II in 1173-4, the greatest crisis of the reign, in which many earls were involved, both for and against the king. Chapter Eight looks at the region comprising Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk, showing the earls in their role as powerful local landlords and Henry II's efforts to establish effective royal control in the area.
