SYNOPSIS:If you want an overview of life in Nineteenth Century England, this is the book. From such details as explanation of a shilling, and the hierarchy of life below stairs, to the broad overview of shires and their governing, this book is a wealth of information. The extensive glossary defines all those words you've come across in Austen and Trollope novels, but wasn't quite sure what they meant. If this information isn't enough, the bibliography directs you to more resources on the topics you which to pursue further.
