Morality and the Market in Victorian Britain

Synopsis

In this stimulating study of mid-Victorian ethics and the political economy, Geoffrey Searle argues that entrenched ideals of public virtue posed a much more effective challenge to market forces than the need to mitigate poverty. Highly readable as well as instructive, the book captures the ideological dilemma at the heart of nineteenth-century British history.
