Bait and switch: the come hither of the 18th century 13 Mar. 2010
By Brian P. Ahlstrom - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The cover alone promises a walk on the wild side of Georgian England, a You ar There version of every bodice ripper ever written.
In reality, this ia a rather dry compendium of stories, arranged by category of sin (pickpockets, bawds, highwaymay, foot-pads) with no real connecting link, no development of insight into the conditions and mores of the time.
