Politics of Trade by Dr Perry Gauci

Book Description

This book examines the political and social impact of the English overseas merchant during this key era of state development. Historians have increasingly recognized the significance of this period as one of commercial and political transition, but relatively little thought has been given to the perspective of the overseas traders, whose activities transended these dynamic arenas. Analsis of the role of merchants in public life highlights their important contribution to England's rise as a commercial power of the first rank, and illuminates the fundamerntal political changes of the time. Case-studies of London, Liverpool, and York reveal the intricate workings of mercantile politics, while studies of the press and Parliament illustrate the increasing prominence of the trader on the national stage. The author's pioneering approach shows how crucial the political accomodation which the merchant class secured with the landed gentry was to the country's success in the eighteenth century.

William Beckford by Dr Perry Gauci William Beckford, Hardback (June 2013)

A biography of William Beckford that provides a look at eighteenth-century British history from the perspective of the colonies. He was born in 1709 into a family of wealthy sugar planters living in Jamaica, when the colonies were still peripheral to Britain.

Regulating the British Economy, 1660-1850 by Dr Perry Gauci Regulating the British Economy, 1660-1850, Hardback (June 2011)

Focuses on the regulation of the British economy in the long eighteenth century as a means to understand the synergies between political, social and economic change as Britain was transformed into a global power. This book challenges the general characterization of the period as a shift from a regulated economy to a more laissez-faire system.
