    The office of Prime Minister stands at the apex of the British political system. An understanding of this post is essential to all who are - or aspire to be - within government, or who observe it from outside.This book combines the methods of history and political science to produce theories of the development, nature and power of the premiership, and to explain the implications for present politicians and analysts. It is essential reading for academics, students, journalists and all who are working in or interested in politics.Blick and Jones have found out things we did not know and created patterns we had not seen in their pursuit of that most elusive phenomenon, the British premiership. This is a book whose trail should wind from the Leader of the Opposition's office, to the Prime Minister's study in No. 10, from the Sixth Form to the University seminar room. Peter Hennessy, Attlee Professor of Contemporary British History, Queen Mary, University of LondonPremiership is going to be a key and important book that all concerned with prime ministers and the British political system are going to have to read, know and inwardly digest. We need to see the application of Blick and Jones's methods to other institutions and parts of the system of government, including Whitehall and the civil service, Parliament, and local government. The argument, analysis and evidence are put together with impressive skill and authority. Kevin Theakston, Professor of British Government, University of LeedsSplendidly wide-ranging and always interesting, an excellent book which provides ample material for thought. The scholarship covers the entire period of the prime ministers since Walpole. No-one else has done so much to trace the diversity of three centuries. The readiness of Blick and Jones to cross numerous frontiers is excellent.

  • The Georgia Dutch: From the Rhine and Danube to the Savannah, 1733-1783

    This is the first comprehensive history of the German-speaking settlers who emigrated to the Georgia colony from Germany, Alsace, Switzerland, Austria, and adjacent regions. Known collectively as the Georgia Dutch, they were the colony's most enterprising early settlers, and they played a vital role in gaining Britain's toehold in a territory also coveted by Spain and France.The main body of the book is a chronological account of the Georgia Dutch from their earliest arrival in 1733 to their dispersal and absorption into what was, by 1783, an Anglo-American populace. Underscoring the harsh daily life of the common settler, George Fenwick Jones also highlights noteworthy individuals and events. He traces recurrent themes, including tensions between the realities of the settlers' lives and the aspirations and motivations of the colony's trustees and supporters; the web of relations between German- and English-speaking whites, African Americans, and Native Americans; and early signs of the genesis of a distinctly new and American sensibility.Three summary chapters conclude The Georgia Dutch. Merging new material with information from previous chapters, Jones offers the most complete depiction to date of Georgia Dutch culture and society. Included are discussions of religion; health and medicine; education; welfare and charity; industry, agriculture, trade, and commerce; Native-American affairs; slavery; domestic life and customs; the arts; and military and legal concerns.Based on twenty-five years of research with primary documents in Europe and the United States, The Georgia Dutch is a welcome reappraisal of an ethnic group whose role in colonial history has, over time, been unfairly minimized.
