Dark Days of Georgian Britain: Rethinking the Regency.
Hobson focuses on the negative side of Regency England, exploring the lives of real people to show the plight of the poor, the corruption of the government, riots and revolutions, attitudes toward adultery and marriage, the moral panic over homosexuality. He looks at prison and punishment, child labor and other aspects of the harsh application of unregulated capitalism, and other sufferings of everyday life among the majority of people.
