Over the past years I have written a series of blogs on Nineteenth century British Society and these will continue. During that time I have been asked on several occasions whether the blogs would be published as a book. This is always an appealing request for an author but the material is too substantial for an established publisher to expend its resources on the publication of the material as a single volume. As a result I decided that the best way to address the requests was to publish the material myself.
The result is a series of five volumes on Nineteenth Century British Society that will be published over the next six months:
Volume 1: Economy, Population and Transport
Volume 2: Work, Health and Poverty
Volume 3: Education, Crime and Leisure
Volume 4: Class
Volume 5: Government and Religion
Each volume will consist of between four and six chapters and will provide a detailed, up-to-date discussion of key developments in nineteenth and early-twentieth century Britain.
- The key features of each volume:
- Clear account of key developments
- Most sections posed as questions
- Widespread use of contemporary sources and illustrations
- Kindle format allowing for easy updating
- Low cost
The volumes will be available via Amazon
