Or, what was history for?
Peter Yeandle

Patriotism, the twin sister of History, is ignored […] the children of those countries imbibe the love of country with their mother’s milk, and when they grew older, History and Patriotism took their hands and guided them into paths every true lover of his own land ought to go’. 8 On the evidence of such statements, it comes as no surprise that a number of studies have focused on the

Music-Hall entertainment, 1870–1914
Penny Summerfield

Nineteenth-century music hall was known as the ‘fount of patriotism’. While some observers praised this development, 1 others such as J. A. Hobson condemned the music hall for manipulating working-class opinion in favour of exploitative imperialist policies. Hobson was convinced, by the absence of mass opposition to the Boer War and by the working-class celebrations of

‘ the truest form of patriotism ’ 9 ‘A new kind of patriotism’? 1 British women in international politics P revious chapters have outlined the diverse contexts in which reformulations of patriotism and citizenship emerged. The feminist movement produced arguments based on ‘separate spheres’ ideologies which held that women’s contribution to the public sphere would bring an increased recognition of humanity in international relations. In contrast, peace workers such as Priscilla Peckover based their arguments on how a full understanding of pacifism would lead

1 Ethnic patriotism The birth of the nation Citizens of Madrid: With the imminent approach of the anniversary of the day that is the most glorious for our people and the most memorable in the annals of the Spanish nation, your constitutional town hall addresses you to announce that the day of the most noble and heroic remembrances, THE SECOND OF MAY, has arrived. On that day, in the name of independence, you made the throne of the most successful soldier of the century tremble beneath him, and, by offering your lives for the sake of your patria, you declared to

The impact of the French Revolution, 1789–1815
Hugh Cunningham

. Britain was at war with France. Philanthropy in the aftermath of Howard’s death proclaimed a love of all humankind. But for the ensuing twenty-five years, except for a brief break with the treaty of Amiens in 1802–03, war captured public attention. Philanthropy was in tension if not in conflict with patriotism. Philanthropists could be depicted as unpatriotic. ‘Universal benevolence’ or ‘universal philanthropy’ seemed unrealistic, naive and potentially dangerous to the interests of the nation. Prison reform, the field in which through Howard philanthropy had come to

7 The British origins of the chevalier d’Eon’s patriotism Introduction On 6 June 1771 a humorous article appeared in the Public Advertiser. It described the plan to build a new Magdalen institution near Bedlam in London. One part of the hospital would be reserved for ladies of ‘Rank and Fortune’, but the other part: is to be appropriated for the Reception of our Patriots, whose honest Enthusiasm about Liberty and the Good of their Country, has quite turned their poor Brains; and whose wild Ravings are now become so loud and extravagant as to annoy and disturb

Pacifist feminism in Britain, 1870–1902
Author: Heloise Brown

This book explores the pervasive influence of pacifism on Victorian feminism. It provides an account of Victorian women who campaigned for peace, and of the many feminists who incorporated pacifist ideas into their writing on women and gender. The book explores feminists' ideas about the role of women within the empire, their eligibility for citizenship, and their ability to act as moral guardians in public life. It shows that such ideas made use – in varying ways – of gendered understandings of the role of force and the relevance of arbitration and other pacifist strategies. The book examines the work of a wide range of individuals and organisations, from well-known feminists such as Lydia Becker, Josephine Butler and Millicent Garrett Fawcett to lesser-known figures such as the Quaker pacifists Ellen Robinson and Priscilla Peckover.
