4-0 out of 5 stars A fascinating satire
When Lord Strutt suddenly dies, a falsified will makes Philip Baboon the new Lord Strutt. Backing the rival claims of Esquire South, John Bull and Nicholas Frog begin court action against Lewis Baboon, the father of Philip Baboon. Though Humphrey Hocus, a brilliant attorney, wins case after case, the court action drags on interminably. As the court action drags on, Hocus assures Bull that Lewis Baboon is nearly finished and the next case must surely finish him. And worse, having been brought to the edge of bankruptcy, Bull discovers that Frog, et al, are ensuring that Bull pays far more than his fair share. Finally, when Bull decides to put an end to it, he discovers the depth of his fellows' dishonesty.

Now, swap Charles II of Spain for the late Lord Strutt, Philip of Anjou for Philip Baboon, Charles of Austria for Esquire South, the English people for John Bull, the Dutch people for Nicholas Frog, Louis XIV for Lewis Baboon, the Duke of Marlborough for Humphrey Hocus, war for court action, battles for cases, general for attorney [pant, pant, pant], and you have the War of the Spanish Succession! (At least as seen through Tory eyes.)

This series of five pamphlets were published in 1712 as an allegory of the War of the Spanish Succession. They have biting satire in them (Marlborough, and quite a few others are roasted quite thoroughly), and make an enjoyable read. I must state, though, that unlike some satires, these pamphlets will not prove terribly entertaining if you get an edition that does not include a good background, footnotes, and a cast of characters (i.e., it is a so-so story on its own, but a wonderful satire).

It is not necessary to know much about the War, so long as you are interested in the subject, and are willing to periodically flip back to the notes (as was the case with me). I would say that this book is an interesting historical artifact, and an excellent piece of literature. By the way, these pamphlets are the source of the character John Bull. ... Read more

Product Description
A thorough understanding of naval policy is essential to comprehend the political, economic and social history of Great Britain before World War I. For most of the 20th century, historians have thought that British naval policy was driven by the Anglo-German arms race. After examining a prodigious quantity of primary sources, Nicholas A. Lambert concludes that Admiralty decision-making was in fact driven by factors totally unrelated to the German building programme. More important domestic considerations influenced these decisions - primarily the inability of the British state to provide sufficient money for maintaining an adequate warship building programme while meeting political demands for the creation of a national system of welfare relief. "Sir John Fisher's Naval Revolution" explores the intrigue and negotiations between the Admiralty and leading domestic reformers of the day, such as Herbert H. Asquith, David Lloyd George and Winston Churchill, and shows how the politicians regarded the issues of naval strategy and finance as central to the success of their proposed social reforms.Lambert also explains how Great Britain's naval leaders responded to these challenges under the direction of Admiral Sir John Fisher, the service head of the Admiralty from 1904-1910. The government of the day appointed Fisher to his post, Lambert demonstrates, expressly because he was prepared to cut naval spending. The author also shows why Fisher came to believe that the only way to preserve Britain's traditional mastery of the seas at an affordable price was to adopt a radically new approach to naval defence. Under Fisher's leadership, the Royal Navy invested heavily in emerging technologies - such as analog computers for gunnery fire-control, long-range torpedoes, aircraft and wireless telegraphy - and created new types of warships such as the battle cruiser and the patrol submarine. At the same time, Fisher encouraged his naval colleagues to abandon the traditional strategic principle of seeking battle with the enemy's main fleet, proposing instead that the Admiralty adopt an "indirect" approach to warfare by focussing on the enemy's economic system.For mainly political reasons, however, Fisher concealed his "military technological revolution" during the ten years preceding World War I from successive prime ministers as well as from much of the navy's officer corps. Thus, while appearing to cooperate with the wishes of his political masters, who wanted him to limit his strategic focus to home defence, Fisher continued working surreptitiously to create a new model fleet capable of protecting all of Britain's imperial interests across the globe. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Lambert sets a new standard
In Sir John Fisher's Naval Revolution Nicholas Lambert has provided a comprehensive analysis of the policies ofAdmiral Sir John Fisher and the Royal Navy in the ten years before the outbreak of World War One.Displaying a remarkable command of the source documents Lambert examines grand strategy, tactical concepts, national financial policy and politics with great skill and fluidly moves between these seemingly disparate subjects with ease.It becomes apparent as Lambert dissects events that much of the research that has went on before on this subject and which forms the basis for many people's ideas about era is superficial and incomplete.

This is a complicated subject but Lambert's grasp of narrative and clean clear prose makes it easy for the interested reader to follow the string through the maze that was British naval policy in the Fisher era.Lambert makes it clear that Fisher was not appointed First Sea Lord in 1904 to introduce the dreadnought battleship/battlecruiser but to cut naval spending.This fact spurred Fisher to introduce new technologies to maintain Britain's naval supremacy when that supremacy was increasingly under threat from a number of quarters.Lambert puts emphasis on Fisher's ideas about the use of flotilla craft.These were small submersible boats and surface craft armed with torpedoes that could close the narrow seas around the British Isles to enemy battle fleets thus freeing the British fleet to roam the high seas, bringing battle to the enemy and protecting her own huge ocean trade.Lambert shows how on the eve of the war, the Royal Navy was on the verge of stopping battleship construction altogether on favor of flotilla craft.This is new ground.

Fisher was faced with four other areas of crisis which this book delves into: financial constraints, manpower limitations, ship deployment policies and forging new tactics that would take advantage of the developing technology that was changing the face of naval warfare.Lambert also makes clear that the senior officers of the Royal Navy in the decade before the war were not operating in an intellectual vacuum, countering the unfortunate impression that many historians have fostered that the navy was resistant to new technology, unable to think critically, and too lazy for deep analysis and staff work.While a number of hidebound ignoramuses had managed to reach high command, most senior officers were energetically working to exploit the emergent technologies to the full extent.

Lambert's story of the Royal Navy before 1914 presents a picture completely different from the accepted one.It is one that is wholly convincing and presents a more satisfying explanation of what happened, and why, than we have had before.I recommend this book to those who are familiar with the subject and have a desire to go deeper into it.You won't be sorry.

3-0 out of 5 stars Giving too much credit to Fisher, and the Royal Navy
This is a superby researched book, though it falls flat on its major premise, that Fisher and the Royal Navy were ahead of the times in terms of naval strategy, armaments or hwat not.

Also the book is a misnomer, as it's more on the rivalries amongst the Board of Amiralty than on Fisher, and its dubious claim that Fisher pioneered the so called "flotilla defense" by submarines and torpedo boats stretches credulity, as Fisher is notorious for NOT beleving in a Naval War Staff, or any war plans at all.

The author also neglects, being a fan of Fisher, to point out that the latter's morbid fascination with "battle cruiser" led to the fiasco in Jutland, though all British historians and apologist will claim that they may have lost a battle there, but ultimately won the war!

4-0 out of 5 stars Politics of Technological Change
An interesting book on the politics of defense spending and its relationship with grand strategy and domestic politics. Tedious at times, and often unbalanced as to proving the grand point and instead focusing on partisan minutae, this book is still interesting to consider; you have to commend Lambert for his exaustive research behind the common assumptions. He did major work in the primary sources.

The point is that much of the arms race theory before WWI is not genuinely correct. The motivations for the growth and posturing of the British Navy prior to WWI had less to do with fear of Germany -although using that fear was an effective tool- than with a naval revolution by the Admiralty's First Lord, Sir John Fisher. It is an intersting foray into the dynamics of defense spending politics, and how that ultimately impacts capabilities and strategy.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Radically Revisionistic History
This is a major revisionist interpretation of British naval policy as conceived and carried out by Admiral Sir John Fisher as First Sea Lord between late 1904 and early 1910.In fact, there appears to be hardly asingle conventional assumption about Fisher's policies, and the policiesand technical flexibility of the Admiralty during this period that is notsubject to reconsideration in the book.

What I found most interesting wasthe startling - to me - degree to which senior British naval officersreadily accepted the potential for torpedo-armed submarine and destroyerflotillas to change naval warfare, and the amount of effort they werewilling to put into devising ways to use this revolutionary potential toreinforce British naval supremacy.The book is filled with descriptions ofBritish investment in submarine technology and the ongoing discussionsbetween naval officers of ways to adapt that technology to British needs.

According to the book, Fisher's planned great revolution in navalwarfare was not intended to be the Dreadnought battleship that his name isstill commonly associated with. Instead it was to be a British fleet madeup of a combination of battlecruisers with Dreadnought-scale heavyarmament, great speed, and excellent gun laying based on analoguecomputers, designed for overseas force projection; and a submarines anddestroyer flotillas designed and deployed for protection of Great Britainand such other narrow seas where they could be used to bottle up potentialenemy forces.This assertion is thoroughly backed up with detailed quotesfrom personal letters and Admiralty memos and position papers, plus theevidence of how Fisher spent funds available to him.

The plans of AdmiralFisher and others in the British Admiralty were developed in largelyhostile political environment. The British government during this period,and the opposition political parties, were intent on reducing British navalexpenditures, and not at all interested in developing the ability to expandBritish ability to project naval force overseas. Therefore, Fisher and hisallies had to act largely in secret, while disguising their true goals frommost of their political masters.

This book has a lot of trees in itsforest.I did not find it easy reading, and I would not recommend it tosomeone with only casual interest in British naval history or the historyof naval technology. To fully understand appreciate the book's thesis andscope, the reader must be willing to delve along with the book's authorinto British domestic politics, British foreign policy, and a host oftechnical issues beyond those mentioned above.I personally found itdifficult at first to fully understand why, given that Fisher had much ofthe Admiralty behind him, and that Winston Churchill, the First Lord of theAdmiralty from 1910 up to 1915, also had great faith in submarine anddestroyer flotillas to control narrow seas, the Royal Navy didn't manage tomake the changeover desired by Admiral Fisher.The way I finallyunderstood it, it comes down to one basic fact, Fisher, Churchill and theirallies in the Admiralty simply did not have enough time.Not enough timeto educate and prepare the politicians and the British public, not enoughtime to nurture the necessary submarine building industry in Britain or inone of the Dominions, and not enough time to guarantee a completely unitedfront in the Admiralty needed to quickly push through such radical changein naval policy.Given that it was less than a decade between Fisher'sappointment as First Sea Lord and the outbreak of WWI, that is probablyreason enough. ...

Now for the first time these high-quality digital copies of original 18th century manuscripts are available in print, making them highly accessible to libraries, undergraduate students, and independent scholars.
Delve into what it was like to live during the eighteenth century by reading the first-hand accounts of everyday people, including city dwellers and farmers, businessmen and bankers, artisans and merchants, artists and their patrons, politicians and their constituents. Original texts make the American, French, and Industrial revolutions vividly contemporary.

The 18th century was a wealth of knowledge, exploration and rapidly growing technology and expanding record-keeping made possible by advances in the printing press. In its determination to preserve the century of revolution, Gale initiated a revolution of its own: digitization of epic proportions to preserve these invaluable works in the largest archive of its kind.

This collection reveals the history of English common law and Empire law in a vastly changing world of British expansion. Dominating the legal field is the Commentaries of the Law of England by Sir William Blackstone, which first appeared in 1765. Reference works such as almanacs and catalogues continue to educate us by revealing the day-to-day workings of society.
