Product Description:

A valuable and compelling portrait of the daily life of Americans during the Victorian era--the fourth volume in the Everyday Life in America series

Review:

"It is impossible not to notice, in reading this exhaustive exploration of the technical and organizational innovations of that era, how many of what we think of as hallmarks of our age--including the breakneck pace of change--are Victorian inventions . . . "-- "Boston Globe""What a wonderful book . . . [Schlereth's] analysis of social context reveals truly profound, intangible transformations in how and where Americans spent their time during four pivotal decades . . . For a book that has no plot--no wars, no great men rising from obscurity--this is astonishingly hard to put down." -- "Booklist""A detailed, lively survey of the commonplace objects, events, experiences, products, and tastes that comprised America's Victorian culture, expressed its values, and shaped modern life . . . A splendid achievement." -- "Kirkus Reviews""The four decades chronicled here were ones of rapid social change, in which the country's population doubled, the foundations of a consumer society were laid . . . All was changed, forever."-- "Washington Post Book World
