Jane Austen and the State of the Nation.
Craig is an Austen scholar who has written many popular articles. In this book she mines Austen's novels for references to upheavals and crises of her time. Craig shows us how the recession, bank failures, war, poverty, national debt, minimum wage debates, Corn Laws, and other issues of her time are dealt with in Austen's prose in ways her contemporaries would have recognized.
