Description - Cruelty and Companionship by A. James Hammerton

Cruelty and Companionship is an account of the intimate but darker sides of marriage in Victorian and Edwardian England. Drawing upon previously unpublished material from the records of the divorce court and matrimonial proceedings in magistrates' courts, the author challenges many popular views about changing family patterns. It opens a rare window onto the sexual politics of everyday life and the routine tensions which conditioned marriage in middle and working class families.
