The Industrial Revolution and the changing face of Britain An exhibition at the Barber Institute of Fine Arts (2008-9) During the late 18th and early 19th centuries, Britain experienced change in all aspects of life, as a result of the Industrial Revolution. Scientific advances and technological innovations brought growth in agricultural and industrial production, economic expansion and changes in living conditions, while at the same time there was a new sense of national identity and civic pride. The most dramatic changes were witnessed in rural areas, where the provincial landscape often became urban and industrialized following advances in agriculture, industry and shipping. Wealth accumulated in the regions and there was soon a need for country banking. These themes were explored in the temporary exhibition The Industrial Revolution and the Changing Face of Britain at the Barber Institute of Fine Arts in 2008–9, and are summarized in this essay. Agriculture Agriculture had dominated the British economy for centuries. Industry

The Luddites were textile workers in Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire and Lancashire, skilled artisans whose trade and communities were threatened by a combination of machines and other practices that had been unilaterally imposed by the aggressive new class of manufacturers that drove the Industrial Revolution. In Nottinghamshire, where the Luddite attacks began in November 1811, the ‘framework-knitters’ or ‘stockingers’ who produced hosiery using stocking frames had a number of grievances, including wage-cutting, the use of unapprenticed youths for the same purpose, and the use of the new ‘wide frames’, which produced cheap, inferior quality goods. The fact that the stockingers objected to the latter because they were destroying the reputation of their trade illustrates the conflict between skilled artisans and the free-market/industrial mindset. Revolution, war, starvation In addition to the economic and technological changes which produced Luddism, the period

History of British fascism, from the British Union of Fascists (BUF) to the British National Party (BNP) Lecture Notes: LECTURE ONE: The Roots of British Fascism Like its continental counterparts, inter-war British Fascism had deep roots in earlier movements of the 'Radical Right', particularly after 1880. These groups came from the political right. From Liberalism To Social Darwinism. The nineteenth century has been called an age of liberalism, a liberalism which was a reaction to the centralising tendencies of absolutism, and whose principles we find expressed by Locke or in the American Declaration of Independence. The liberal movement, however different it may have been in character, influence and political tactics in the various regions of central and western Europe, brought on to the political stage a commercial and industrial middle class whose liberal ideology changed - initially almost imperceptibly - as it gained economic and political power. There were different variations of Social Darwinism. British Anti-Semitism The Pre-War 'Radical Right' in Britain: An Assessment. (A.

Orlando Parry, ‘A London street scene’, 1834, watercolour In 1855, James Dawson Burn’s book The Language of the Walls argued that reading posters could be revelatory: the mass of announcements on London’s walls display the roots of a new kind of language, that which underpinned the developing commodity culture of Victorian Britain. In the same way, Orlando Parry, the painter of A London Street Scene (1), shows posters as a new visual extravaganza to be admired. Here, St Paul’s Cathedral is literally shut out by this modern spectacle, the cornucopia of typefaces offering their own fascinating insight into the life of the city. Although the cliched cast of London social characters that fill the lower half of the painting ignore the bill-sticker pasting up his latest offering, Parry has clearly paid microscopic attention to the details of these curious objects – their typefaces accurately reflecting what would have been available to printers in the mid-1830s. 2. 3. 4.

Lady Jane Grey and Lord Guilford Dudley Executions 1554 Lady Jane Grey and her husband, Lord Guildford Dudley, were executed on 12 February 1554 at the Tower of London. The account below was found in the anonymous Chronicle of Queen Jane and of Two Years of Queen Mary. The decision to execute her cousin was not easy for Queen Mary I. But when Jane’s father led another rebellion against her rule, she could no longer tolerate the Protestant threat. His [Guildford’s] carcase thrown into a cart, and his head in a cloth, he was brought to the chapel within the Tower, where the Lady Jane, whose lodging was in Partidge’s house, did see his dead carcase taken out of the cart, as well as she did see him before alive on going to his death – a sight to her no less than death.

Nuclear bunker on sale in Nottinghamshire - BBC News A Cold War-era bunker, complete with instructions for what to do during a nuclear attack, is up for auction. The underground bunker was built in the Nottinghamshire countryside, in 1961, at the height of tensions between the West and the Soviet Union. The small room, four metres below the ground, has been left more or less as it was when it was shut down in 1991, explained auctioneer Richard Gadd. It could have housed up to four staff. "It would have been quite uncomfortable but they still managed to fit them in somehow. "It wasn't really built for comfort, it was built for a purpose." And that purpose was to monitor the effects of what was believed to be an impending nuclear attack. It was built by the Royal Observers Corps, in Burton Joyce, in the year the construction of the Berlin Wall began and the Bay of Pigs invasion took place. The regiment built more than 1,500 monitoring posts across the country between 1956 and 1965. Mr Catford said it was rare to find one so well preserved.

Tiedemann gives a survey of the factors behind the ignominious Opium Wars that the U.K. fought and won 150 years ago, first published in China Now magazine 1989. See also Opium in China In 1997 the colony of Hong Kong was returned to China. Hong Kong Island became a British possession as a direct result of the Opium War, the opening shots of which were fired 150 years ago. The 'Canton system' and the opium trade It is often said that the 'Opium War' was not fought over opium but in the name of free trade, as well as diplomatic and judicial equality with China. Two developments in the 1830s undermined this relatively stable 'Canton system': the significant expansion of opium smuggling and the rise of free-trade imperialism. The opium addict often sold all his possessions to pay for the opium. The opium traffic was of considerable economic importance to the British.
