Review

Drew Gray's book is a fine addition to the literature on urban history at a time when we were learning to live in large communities and experimenting with different ways of doing so. (History Today)

A scholarly work, drawing on a wide range of sources, but it's also very readable. It provides a welcome and sensible counterbalance to the endless titles about 'ripperology' with its focus on the grim realities of life in London's poorer quarters at the time.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an excellent and fascinating work on the Victorian period. Filled with surprising scholarly facts, yet eminently readable, it is really a model for how solid history should be written. For anyone seeking to understand what the era was like--both the dark side and bigger sociological and political picture-- Professor Gray's work is essential.
