I enjoyed this detailed overview of the Victorian Era. It is liberally illustrated with photos and paintings. The text is well documented with footnotes and a bibliography. Especially interesting to me was the list of Periodicals and Manuscripts consulted.
The writing style in this book is disorganized and poorly edited. If you do not already have some familiarity with the characters in the Victorian era you will find this difficult to follow as notables are mentioned 'en passant' often without context. It is interesting to see the span of the Victorian era in one volume with reference to main artists, authors, politicians and social issues [from work houses to sweat shops and typhoid epidemics] but it is a shame that such an expensive printing is written in such a disjunctive style. It is a frustrating read, even for one who has a modicum of background in European history.
