Editorial Reviews

Review

"A big fresco of the Victorian years, Susie Steinbach's volume depicts the culture, the lifestyles, as well as the social and political interactions that characterised an era when Great Britain was the most powerful nation in the world." - Ricerche di Storia Politica

"Understanding the Victorian by Susie L. Steinback…fills in the blanks of standard texts by looking at the period (ca. 1820-1914) topically with chapters on living space, consumption, class, gender, arts and entertainment, sexuality, religion, and science…I can wholeheartedly recommend Understanding the Victorians as required reading for studens and a useful read for their instructors or for anyone interested in the period."Barbara Brandon Schnorrenberg, Anglican and Episcopal History

About the Author

I needed a scholarly overview of Victorian British culture for a research project, and Steinbach's book was a perfect match: an enjoyable read balancing a healthy amount of detail with very readable prose.

I loved this book because it takes history and makes it fun and informative for both historian and non historian (like me)
