Orthodox historical accounts of popular experience in mid-Victorian Britain suggest certain homogenous and seemingly clear stable social and political orders. Host re-examines the historical debate and challenges conventional interpretations
"[This book is] strongly argued, impeccably written, sophisticated in its handling of evidence, and evenhanded in its judgements...steeped fully in the current literature concerning the epistemology and methodology of historical enquiry. It is hard to fault the courtesy, precision and conceptual sophistication of his arguments, his delicacy in his handling of documents, and his fairness in assessing the work of historians whom he credits even while criticizing. Polished and impressive....this is a really fine work." -Hayden White, University of California, Santa Cruz
