Book Description

Following the success of The Victorian City, we are delighted to announce the forthcoming reprint of The Victorian Countryside. Originally published in two volumes, this set represents a major landmark in the social history of the United Kingdom. It provides a detailed and authoritative survey of a period when the economy and landscape of the British countryside was transformed forever by the industrial revolution. The set is particularly notable for its inclusion of studies on folk life and oral history, sources which have greatly enriched our knowledge of past rural societies.
This set is also available in two volumes:
* Volume I: 0-415-24195-2: £125.00
* Volume II: 0-415-24196-0; £125.00
