  • My new toy

    Posted by Helen on August 31st, 2011 (All posts by )

    Well, actually, it is not that new. For some years I edited the journal of the Conservative History Group, called (somewhat unimaginatively perhaps) Conservative History Journal. Soon after I took that over, I set up a blog that was dedicated, more or less, to conservative history as I always thought the small ‘c’ was more important than the big one. The same applied to the journal itself.

    For various reasons to do with changes in the Conservative History Group, editing of the printed journal has now been taken over by the new Director of the group and I have decided to concentrate on the blog. A friendly geek turned it into more of an online magazine (though a few tweaks are still needed) that will incorporate the old blog, written by Tory Historian and other articles, short and long, written by me and, I hope, other contributors.

    One of the first blog postings in the new format will be of special interest to CBz readers: an brief account of a very useful new pamphlet, published by the Adam Smith Institute, a condensed version of The Wealth of Nations. I shall be reviewing it for my blog and, I hope, the Salisbury Review but, in the meantime, this gives and indication of its quality and all the necessary links.

      Helen, thanks for the update. I like the new look and, since I read the blog but not the Journal, am selfishly pleased to learn that you are now focusing on the blog.

      Here’s a Smith question: his famous example on “pins” – did he mean a joiner’s pins or a seamstress’s pins?

    3. Helen Says:

      I have always assumed he meant seamstress’s pins but I may well be wrong. What is your view?

    4. dearieme Says:

      I have no idea which he meant, nor does it matter, really: just idle curiosity.
