The Victorian World PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Victorian World free pdf With an interdisciplinary approach that encompasses political history, the history of ideas, cultural history, and art history, The Victorian World offers a sweeping survey of the world in the 19th century. The volume offers a fresh evaluation of Britain and its global presence in the years from the 1830s to the 1900s. It brings together scholars from History, Literary Studies, Art History, Historical Geography, Historical Sociology, Criminology, Economics and the History of Law, to explore more than forty themes central to an understanding of the nature of Victorian society and culture, both in Britain and in the rest of the world. Organised around six core themes -- the world order, economy and society, politics, knowledge and belief and culture -- the volume offers thematic essays which consider the interplay of domestic and global dynamics in the formation of Victorian orthodoxies. A further section on 'Varieties of Victorianism' offers considerations the production and reproduction of external versions of Victorian culture, in India, Africa, the United States, the settler colonies and Latin America. These thematic essays are supplemented by a substantial introductory essay which offers a challenging alternative to traditional interpretations of the chronology and periodisation of the Victorian years. Lavishly illustrated, vivid and accessible, this volume is invaluable reading for all students and scholars of the 19th century.
