The Age of Reform: 1815-1870
Sir E. Llewellyn Woodward

(January 8, 2011)

Recommended as a general history of the Victorian era, this delightful volume takes a very broad view without generalization or loss of detail. This is by no means a small book at 702 pages, yet Woodward maintains throughout an air of breathless concision, a sensation that there is no time to waste on inessentials.
