Description - British Women in the Nineteenth Century by Kathryn Gleadle
This synthesis is a clear assessment of 19th-century British women. It aims to provide students with an in depth understanding of the key historiographical debates and issues, placing particular emphasis upon revisionist research. The book highlights not merely the ideologies and economic circumstances which shaped women's lives, but highlights the sheer diversity of women's own experiences and identities. In so doing, it presents a positive but nuanced interpretation of women's roles within their own families and communities, as well as stressing women's enormous contribution to the making of contemporary British culture and society.
