Victorian Values : Personalities and Perspectives in Nineteenth Century Society Paperback

Description

Victorian Values is an absorbing portrait of Victorian society and culture, presenting different aspects of the age through profiles of representative or pioneering figures - among them Dickens, Pugin, Mary Kingsley, Lord Leighton, Gladstone and Joseph Chamberlain.

It illuminates Victorian attitudes to a range of issues from education, health and self-help to civic ideals and sexual identity.

Widely used and enjoyed by students, teachers and general readers alike, it has now been extended with four new essays and the Introduction, comparing the Victorian age with our own, has been updated and rewritten.
