This four-volume reset collection examines the distinctive character of working-class life in the cities of Victorian and Edwardian Britain. It focuses on how identities were constructed in families and neighbourhoods, the workplace, leisure pursuits and through the operation of power. A variety of perspectives and voices are represented including external observers, social investigators, and the literate minority of the working class itself. The sources illuminate not only the agendas and prejudices of privileged society but also the biases of the literate minority who came to occupy positions of prominence through social mobility.The documents are all rare in print form and come from a variety of sources including periodicals, articles in magazines, pamphlets and excerpts from books. The volumes are organized thematically and are prefaced by separate introductions. Other editorial features include an extensive general introduction, headnotes, endnotes and a consolidated index.The collection will be of value to those engaged in research into social and political history, economics and Victorian Studies.
