Editorial Reviews

Review


"...[a] splendid volume....Theodore Hoppen's book will define our views of mid-Victorian society for the next two or three generations, and well it should. It is a book written from deep knowledge, wide reading, and sparkling historical vision; students and scholars will gain much from reading it."--Albion


"...[a] rich and nuanced picture of Britain between 1846 and 1886...Hoppen writes with uncommon fluency, grace and wit."--David Cannadine, Columbia University


"...a critical review of recent conclusions among social and economic historians..."Times Literary Supplement


"...a qualified triumph...episodes of brilliant exposition and historical insight."--Historical Journal


"Hoppen has succeeded in providing a solid, valuable reference that will serve...as an essential source on the mid-Victorian age."--History

K. Theodore Hoppen's book is an invaluable resource for students and scholars of the Victorian Generation. The breadth of its scholarship is extraordinary. It is teeming with important information and provides references for further reading. The book significantly adds to the scholarship of Asa Brigg's The Age of Improvement since it considers the era after the Second reform Bill of 1867 which is crucial to understanding the direction of English history.

This is a remarkable book, and really does consider the perceptions of those people born into or coming of age in the middle of the Victorian era, which is a fascinating topic. It really does try to consider a wide range of topics, from the role of Empire to the Irish question to issues at home, and this can be both a strength and a detriment for the book, depending on whether a reader wants specific information or an attempt to synthesise a broad overall perspective. There is a bit more political history than I personally care for, but that is honestly a matter of preference and no flaw to the book. I would finally note that while I am used to academic texts as a college professor, at times this one was a bit dry, although again that is hardly unique to this text and current historical writing.

This is more of a textbook than a popular history, which is neither good nor bad in and of itself. It's all a matter of what you are looking for. For those who are looking for a political narrative, this book may frustrate them. For those just as interested in societal and economic development, this book is a gold mine of information. Very well written.

Three stars, mostly because I'm a tough grader. Two and a half stars would be average, and this is slightly above average.

It's hard to figure out who the book is for. It's a very broad overview, so, for someone who doesn't know the period. But it's written in a way that presupposes quite extensive knowledge of the people and events.
