Book Description Virgin. Book Condition: Very Good. . Hardcover. "Virgin, 1992, 2nd edn. in laminated pictorial jacket in mint condition; blue cloth boards in mint condition; x+198pp in mint condition. What's in a name? Or, perhaps more appropriately - what's in a title? Some yearn for it, others dismiss it, and some even pay for it. The conferring of honours remains a constant source of anticipation, speculation and outrage, but the honours system continues in the face of shocking abuse and numerous attempts to abolish it. Every year some 3000 people receive honours - from well-known actors and sportsmen to time serving backbenchers, from faceless civil servants to the token postmistress and doorman. In this witty and revealing insight into the much-debated honours system, Michael De-la-Noy traces the history, ambiguities and relevance of a system that many believe is now merely an anachronism. Through extensive research and interviews, he unveils the mystery of the distribution of peerages and knighthoods, and amply scatters colourful anecdotes about the comic and often scandalous deeds committed in the pursuit of a title. It is a fascinating and honest appraisal, in which the truth about how sovereigns, prime ministers and commoners have abused and manipulated the system for political and financial gain is revealed - like Lloyd George, who sold honours with the help of his notorious broker, Maundy Gregory, and Margaret Thatcher who, though not as blatantly, also manipulated the system to her considerable political advantage. In this new and entirely revised edition of a modern classic, Michael De-la-Noy has an opportunity once again to cast a wry and critical eye over the system. The Honours System is a must for everyone fascinated by the intrigue, history and politics of public honours, and by their possible fate in an era trumpeted even by a Conservative prime minister as the beginning of 'a classless society'. Contents: Introduction | List of the Principal British Honours | Glossary | 1. "A Greate Heart's Ease" | 2. Lords and Ladies | 3. Second-Class Peers | 4. Knights and Dames | 5. "A Sorry Ambition" | 6. Maundy Gregory | 7. Who Gets What. | 8. . and How | 9. Conclusions | Books Consulted | Index. 8¾x5½in". . . . . Books ship from the US and Ireland.
