Who's Who in Victorian Britain (Who's Who in British History)

Who's Who in Victorian Britain (Who's Who in British History) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When histories, too often, have little room for the individuals who are the life and soul of the past, there is a place for a history which is composed of the lives of those who helped to make it what it was-and is. --Geoffrey Treasure, series editor.

Many see the Victorian era as Britain's heyday. Certainly some of the nation's most exceptional citizens lived then, not least, of course, Queen Victoria herself. In all fields, pioneers were at work, among them Isbard Kingdom Brunel, Florence Nightingale, John Ruskin, William Morris, Sir Robert Peel, Sir John Stuart Mill, Michael Faraday, Edward Lear, and Charles Darwin. To come in the series: Who's Who in Roman Britain and Anglo-Saxon England, Who's Who in Early Medieval England, Who's Who in Late Medieval England, Who's Who in Stuart Britain, Who's Who in Early Hanoverian Britain, Who's Who in Late Hanoverian Britain

Synopsis:

Stackpole is pleased to introduce the final two installments in the Who's Who in British History series. Chronologically arranged and extensively indexed, these eight volumes are an indispensable guide to the people of 2,000 years of British history, from kings and archbishops to artists, warriors, and revolutionaries. Each volume paints a portrait of an age. Unlike in typical biographical dictionaries, entries of the subjects are placed in the contexts of their time and the chronological arrangements foster a sense of intimacy and narrative, allowing readers to read the volumes from cover to cover and to gain new insights into the particular era's history.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 431) and index.
