An Illustrated Introduction To The Georgians, Paperback / softback Book

An Illustrated Introduction To The Georgians Paperback / softback

Part of the An Illustrated Introduction to ... series


This guide to the Georgian era examines the key events of the period from 1714 to 1837.

Starting with the culture and style of the period, it moves on to the 'movers and shakers' of the political scene and looks at the growth of empire and the abolition movement.

As well as exploring the politics of the period, we see how the Georgians dined, how they relaxed and how they socialised.

We learn what it was to be fashionable in the time of Beau Brummell, and explore the world of Georgian entertainment, from the birth of the modern circus to the origins of sports such as cricket, billiards and squash.

This book is intended for anyone interested in a century that still resonates with us today - much of our world was shaped by the Georgians.
