 About the Book 

Through a series of interrelated case-studies of nineteenth-century history books, history textbooks, and historical novels, Rosemary Mitchell draws out the attitudes of Victorians toward their national past. She highlights how history--once a popular pastime--became the preserve of professionals and how both the text and images in popular and scholarly publications contributed to Victorian cultural identities.
