One of the most approachable and useful books on the period.From the Back Cover:
The Great Exhibition of 1851 represented the high-water mark of Victorian society, and the two decades which followed form one of the most fascinating and fruitful areas of British history. What was life at home and at work like in that era? What motivated the mid-Victorians, and what were their interests and concerns?
In this delightfully readable and informative study, Professor Best places mid-Victorian Britain in its social, economic and political context.
"Well written, well constructed and altogether a fascinating account…liberal history at its most sophisticated"
