Contested Liberalisms

Martineau, Dickens and the Victorian Press

Iain Crawford

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Edinburgh Critical Studies in Victorian Culture

  • Demonstrates, through new readings of Martineau and Dickens>'s travel in and writing about the United States, how their encounters with the American public sphere were crucially formative in both writers>' careers and in their shaping as journalists
  • Places Martineau and Dickens within the context of Anglo-American liberalism, thereby expanding our reading of them beyond earlier schema framed in narrower terms of political economy
  • Expands understandings of transatlantic literary exchange to offer a more comprehensive reading than those offered through an earlier critical focus simply on the issue of international copyright
