The Silent Revolution and the Making of Victorian England

Framsida
Ohio State University Press, 2000 - 405 sidor
Herbert Schlossberg argues that by the time Victoria became queen in 1837, Victorian culture was already essentially in place. Focusing on the period between the 1790s and the 1840s, Schlossberg shows how the religious revival that took hold of England's culture in the early years of the 19th century constituted a silent revolution - as opposed to the violent political revolutions taking place in France and other European countries - that formed the basis of Victorian culture. Among other effects, this revolution effectively addressed the dislocation brought about by rapid economic change and population growth, which were producing strains in the already shaky moral and religious foundation of the English nation.
