Boek cover Fourier van Charles Fourier (Paperback)
'The Theory of the Four Movements'
This remarkable book, written soon after the French Revolution, has traditionally been considered one of the founding documents in the history of socialism. It introduces the best-known and most extraordinary utopia written in the last two centuries. Charles Fourier was among the first to formulate a right to a minimum standard of life. His radical approach involved a systematic critique of work, marriage and patriarchy, together with a parallel right to a sexual minimum. He also proposed a comprehensive alternative to the Christian religion. Finally, through the medium of a bizarre and...

Boek cover Watts Perfect Engine van Ben Marsden (Hardcover)
Steam and the Age of Invention
As the inventor of the separate-condenser steam engine-that Promethean symbol of technological innovation and industrial progress-James Watt has become synonymous with the spirit of invention, while his last name has long been immortalized as the very measurement of power. But contrary to popular belief, Watt did not single-handedly bring about the steam revolution. His perfect engine was as much a product of late-nineteenth-century Britain as it was of the inventor's imagination. As one of the greatest technological developments in human history, the steam engine was a major progenitor of...

Boek cover Watts Perfect Engine van Ben Marsden (Paperback)
Steam and the Age of Invention
We all know the story. A young James Watt gazed up at a simmering kettle, then grew up and replaced the rattling lid with a piston, heralding the age of steam. But how much of this familiar legend is true? Ben Marsden's entertaining and informative book provides the answer, which as you might guess is: not a lot. Scotland on Sunday James Watt is synonymous with the steam engine: Promethean symbol of the Industrial Revolution. But what motivated Watt to re-invent steam? And how did Watt's perfect engine become the progenitor of progress and its problems in nineteenth-century Britain?

Boek cover Karl Marx van Gareth Stedman Jones (Hardcover)
grootheid en illusie: de biografie
Uniek boek over de aartsvader van het communisme De 19de eeuw was een periode van ongekende veranderingen. Intellectueel, sociaal, economisch, religieus, technologisch – de uitdagingen waren groter dan ooit.

In de nasleep van de Slag bij Waterloo vond tegelijkertijd Europa-breed een debat plaats over de werkelijke betekenis van de Franse Revolutie en de hoop en angsten die deze had voortgebracht. Midden in deze discussie staat Karl Marx, de zoon van een Joodse bekeerling uit het...

Boek cover Routledge Revivals: Metropolis London (1989) van  (Onbekend)
Histories and Representations since 1800
First published in 1989, this book seeks to demonstrate the social and political images of late-twentieth century London — the post-big-bang city, docklands, trade union defeats, a mounting north-south divide — do not mark as decisive break with the past as they may appear to. It argues that the most striking thing about London's history since 1800 is the continuities and recurrences which punctuate it. The essays collected in this book focus on these themes and address important questions about class, nationality, sexual difference, and radical politics. They combine the established...
