The Victorians : A Beginner's Guide Paperback

Part of the Beginner's Guides series


The Victorian era was a time of unprecedented transformation, yet it is often understood only through the stereotypes of crowded factories, child labour and emotional repression.

In this entertaining and scholarly introduction, Dr David Gange explores the political, social and economic realities that defined life for Victorian people.

Weaving together the perspectives of historians and literary scholars with movements in art, science and ethics, Gange paints a colourful, interdisciplinary portrait of everyday life in nineteenth century Britain.

The Victorians: A Beginner's Guide features such famous figures as Dickens and Disraeli, while offering a thought-provoking examination of how our perceptions of this pivotal period of history have changed.
