That was a mouthful. Happily though, the only long-winded thing about this book was its title. Published in 1998, it is a relatively informative book, focusing primarily on the Victorian Age. Ms. Hughes divides the book, rather helpfully in three primary sections: Everyday life, Government War and the Economy, and Society.

I thought the strongest, most informative section was Everyday LIfe. Lots of details that I never knew about digging up the streets of London to run gas pipes for lamps, food that sounds more like a dare to my modern mind than a regular repast, and interesting facts about servants from what they were entitled to do to what they made.

The Government War and Economy section left something to be desired. The military information as far as how commissions were purchased, advancements, and so forth was interesting. However, the banking and general money issues were glossed over so that simple things like what the hell a guinea is and why it came to be were never covered (1 shilling 1 penny; it was considered more refined).

Lastly the Society section, covered mourning at length, but skirted over courtships, engagements and married life generally. So much of what I seem to read in period books focuses on society and the interaction between different groups. So this was disappointing.

I think as a “get your feet wet” with life and times sort of book on the Victorian period, this'll do. ( )

With the exception of a couple of good charts, practically useless for a writer interested in the Regency. At least 75% of the material is explicitly geared toward the Victorian period. Even worse is the purported general or overview material that doesn't acknowledge its Victorian bias. ( )

A nice overview of life in the Regency and Victorian eras. Separated into three parts: Everyday Life; Government, War and the Economy; Society. ( )
