The Victorians free pdf The 19th century saw greater changes than any previous era: in the ways nations and societies were organized, in scientific knowledge, and in non-religious intellectual development.

Wilson singles out those writers, statesmen, scientists, philosophers and soldiers whose lives illuminated an age on the cusp of modernity. He illuminates, through these signature lives, how Victorian England started a revolution that still hasn't ended.
