 Trusting Leviathan Martin Daunton 9780521037488
Professor Martin Daunton's major work of original synthesis explores the politics of taxation in the "long" nineteenth century. In 1799, income tax stood at 20% of national income; by the outbreak of the First World War, it was 10%. This equitable exercise in fiscal containment lent the government a high level of legitimacy, allowing it to fund war and welfare in the twentieth century. Combining...

 State and Market in Victorian Britain: War, Welfare and Capitalism Martin Daunton 9781843833833
In the course of the nineteenth century, the economic structure and policies of Britain were remade, as the costs of the "fiscal-military" state which fought successful wars against France were cut, and monopolies gave way to free trade, while monetary policy was determined by the automatic operation of the gold standard. However, the result was not, as might be expected, the triumph of laissez...

 Just Taxes Martin Daunton 9780521039796
This original work explores the politics of British taxation in the twentieth century. By 1979, taxes were taken from almost half of the total national income, and contributed to the political rise of Margaret Thatcher. But the level of taxation had risen from 10% in 1914 to about 25% between the wars, without provoking serious discontent (as in other European countries). It also grew again...

While conceptions of the 'modern' have been intensively and fruitfully studied from a variety of perspectives in the context of continental European history, scholars of Britain have hardly addressed the history of the first industrial nation and the world's leading colonial power in this register, despite its enormous cultural influence.In examining British conceptions and expressions of...

 The Politics of Consumption: Material Culture and Citizenship in Europe and America Martin Daunton Matthew Hilton 9781859734711
Objects and commodities have frequently been studied to assess their position within consumer - or material - culture, but all too rarely have scholars examined the politics that lie behind that culture. This book fills the gap and explores the political and state structures that have shaped the consumer and the nature of his or her consumption. From medieval sumptuary laws to recent debates in...

In the last 50 years, historians have undertaken considerable research on the Empire which has produced many new insights - yet they have not given much attention to the thinking of economists in the past about the Empire. The aim of this book...
