First published in 1964. The purpose of this title is to examine and describe certain aspects of English life and thought between 1852 and 1867. By exploring the lives of certain men and women the reader will be presented with an illustration of the actions and opinions of the time. The book draws a contrast between mid-Victorian England and the England of the "Romantic" England; with the object of showing how certain potentially disruptive forces had abated and what remained after their abatement. This title will be of interest to students of history.
