Jacobitism and Tory Politics by D. Szechi

Book Description

The author concentrates in depth on a short but crucial period in British political history, when the Jacobites were attempting to gain their ends through conventional political action. He shows their influence on the mainstream of Toryism and sheds new light on the vexed question of the extent to which the first Tory party was intrinsically committed to Jacobitism by the time of the Hanoverian succession. In the course of his study of Jacobitism in action, Dr Szechi has also written the first detailed study of the events and crises of these years from the point of view of backbenchers at Westminster, and provides a fresh appraisal of their role, self-image, and the degree to which their leaders could control them in the first age of the party. This book will be of great use to scholars and students of the period, and to anyone who is interested in political history and the machinations of parliamentary intrigue.

Loyalty and Identity by D. Szechi Loyalty and Identity, Hardback (November 2009)

This collection of essays provides a series of fresh approaches to a fascinating subject: Jacobitism. The contributors focus on issues of identity and memory among Jacobites in Scotland, Ireland, England and Europe. They examine Jacobitism as an integral aspect of culture and society in the British Isles and beyond during the century after 1688.

The complex of political thought, beliefs about the contemporary world and the perception of history that sustained the Scottish Jacobite community has long remained obscure. This is an essay on the retrieval of a lost outlook.
