Editorial Reviews

English Historical Review

Informative and well written.

Choice

Imaginative and well-researched... pioneering.

History

This is an interesting study and raises many valuable points.

European Review of History
This is an extremely welcome book, which will enlighten its readers on a quite scandalously neglected aspect of ninteenth-century British culture... [T]his is a book which should be read by all who are interested in the cultural history of nineteenth century Britain.

— Martin Hewitt

Studies in English Literature 1500-1900
So good that it is extraordinary that it has not been written before.
