In These Times: Living in Britain through Napoleon's Wars, 1783-1815.
Uglow looks at the world war that raged during this period from the point of view of folks who stayed behind - the "butchers, bakers, and candle-stick makers" as well as farmers, millwrights, labourers, gentry and the poor. Primary sources are drawn from familiar voices like Austen, Wordsworth, Byron and Scott, to people forgotten by time. With period illustrations. For our customers, Austen and her family members make several appearances. 740 pgs. Farrar, Straus and Giroux, NY. 2014. Hb, Dj. USED. $15.00
