Work, gender and family in Victorian England

Karl Ittmann

This study examines the impact of the Industrial Revolution upon the family and questions the extent to which ordinary working men and women shared the "Victorian values" of their middle-class countrymen. The book focuses on the industrial town of Bradford, West Yorkshire in the second half of the 19th century and traces how men and women and their families adapted to the new life brought by the rise of the mill and the city. The book combines social history and quantitive population analysis and is based on a database of 3000 individuals.
