Nineteenth-Century Britain

Integration and Diversity

Keith Robbins

A Clarendon Press Publication

Ford Lectures

In this stimulating account Robbins looks at various aspects of life which served to unite or divide nineteenth-century Britain, including religion, patterns of eating and drinking, the political system, commercial development, education, language, literature, and music. He concludes that the "British" nation, though not uniform in character, became sufficiently consolidated throughout the 19th century to withstand the divisive crises of the early 20th century.
