Product description


'[Sanders] writes well, and sagely concludes with a truism that is not conformed to a specific historical time and place, concerning 'the impossibility of being the all-powerful protector against the chance contingencies of modern life'.' Modern Language Review

' … [an] excellent book …' The Brown Book: Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford

Book Description

This is a study of Victorian middle-class fatherhood from the fathers' own perspective. It aims to dismantle the classic stereotype of the nineteenth-century paterfamilias by focusing on the lives of influential public men, ranging from novelists to politicians, scientists and leading churchmen.
