Description

Shortlisted for the Duff Cooper PrizeAs the Napoleonic wars raged, what was life really like for those left at home?

Award-winning social historian Jenny Uglow reveals the colourful and turbulent everyday life of Georgian Britain through the diaries, letters and records of farmers, bankers, aristocrats and mill-workers.

Here, lost voices of ordinary people are combined with those of figures we know, from Austen and Byron to Turner and Constable.

In These Times movingly tells the story of how people really lived in one of the most momentous and exciting periods in history.
