In this wide-ranging volume, leading scholars across several disciplines--history, literature, sociology, and cultural studies--investigate the nature of liberalism and modernity in imperial Britain since the eighteenth century. They show how Britain's liberal version of modernity (of capitalism, democracy, and imperialism) was the product of a peculiar set of historical circumstances that continues to haunt our neoliberal present.

Review:

"The uniformly accomplished essays comprising The Peculiarities of Liberal Modernity in Imperial Britain, edited by Simon Gunn and James Vernon, are held together by a strong analytical framework that squarely faces the theoretical and historical conundrums posed by the category of liberal modernity. Each of the Essays takes up this challenge--established in a superb introduction--and offer nuanced meditations on the nature of modernity in imperial Britain . . . Essays skillfully reconsider the key features of liberal modernity as a historical process" * Victorian Studies *
