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. Lavishly illustrated, vivid and accessible, this volume is invaluable reading for all students and scholars of the 19th century.
