Overview

It was an age of expectation and excess. An age that celebrated heroes and bore the burden of empire. An age of prosperity and mercantile endeavor. An age of poverty, misery and appalling crime. An age in which passions and desires were cloaked in propriety and reserve.

Reviews

"Geary's stark black-and-white illustrations resemble woodcuts; the maps, diagrams and portraits he includes allow him to immerse the reader in the complexities and specificities of each case without the details becoming overwhelming." —Radha Vatsal, Kirkus Reviews
