This is a clear and stimulating assessment of 19th-century British women. It provides an in-depth understanding of the key historiographical debates and issues, placing particular emphasis upon recent, revisionist research. The book highlights not only the ideologies and economic circumstances which shaped women's lives, but also highlights the sheer diversity of women's own experiences and identities. It presents a positive but nuanced interpretation of women's roles within their own families and communities, as well as stressing women's enormous contribution to the making of contemporary British culture and society.
