Victorian Values A Joint Symposium of the Royal Society of Edinburgh and the British Academy, December 1990 Synopsis

In recent years there has been a great deal of discussion about Victorian values. This collection of papers attempts to sift through the myths to illustrate how the reality of the Victorian age differs from modern perceptions. Of particular relevance is Raphael Samuel's important examination of Mrs Thatcher's use of the concept, while other papers shed light on Victorian issues, from the Scotland of Samuel Smiles to the position of women.
