'Royle calls on an impressive range of materials (supported by an excellent bibliography) to offer a judicious review of most of the issues currently confronted by social historians. His agenda contains both traditional and novel elements all are presented with admirable clarity and balance. A volume which shows an astonishing command of such a wide range of material will long prove essential.' --The Times Literary Supplement
'This book goes beyond the merely useful business of historiographical summary, and encourages students to think more deeply about the significance of historical developments.' --The Times Higher Education Supplement

This book was perhaps the best purchase I made during my History degree. It has a first class bibliography and further reading section. Each chapter is an excellent overview and I recommend this book to anyone new to nineteenth century social history. It is clearly written and I still enjoy dipping into it nearly twenty years later!

I bought this book because it was recommended by my college. However, it is very detailed and not easy to read. It gives many facts and figures but I often find myself looking for other books to help me understand aspects of history. I would not recommend this book.
