Description : Excerpt from The British and Foreign Review, or European Quarterly Journal, Vol. 1: July-October, 1835 Among the multitude of periodical works that issue from the British press, it is incumbent on the Projectors of a new Review to show, that there is still a vacant space on which to bestow their labours. The truth is, of this class of existing publications it may be said, almost universally, that they are conducted with partial and limited views, for the interests of certain portions of society, and particular departments of knowledge, and are calculated to uphold some party, rather than the commonwealth of letters. There mmains, therefore, a chasm to be filled up, by a journal that shall embrace an ampler field of operation, collect the gleanings of literary research, and bring into one stores house the dispersed grains of science, as fast as they are brought to maturity by the intellectual industry of Europe. How far we shall be able to discharge such an othee, is not for us to decide. It will be in vain either to deprecate censure, or solicit indulgence. All that we have to do, is to explain our design, and to proceed forthwith to its execution, leaving to others to judge of its merit, and to pronounce upon its fate.

Description : Excerpt from The British and Foreign Review, or European Quarterly Journal, Vol. 6: January-April, 1838 The history of literature is a subject so inviting, but at the same time requiring such various and minute knowledge, that although many comprehensive schemes for its execution have been projected by learned men, none of them has been carried beyond the completion of particular departments. The deficiency noted in the seventeenth century by Lord Bacon, who likens the history of the world, wanting that of literature, to the statue of Polyphemus with his eye out, still exists: nor will it be supplied on the scale he has laid down, until undertaken by some one who, to Lord Bacon's Perception of what it should comprise, brings even superior leaning, with all the aids and insights that recent inquiries have contributed, to this province of history.

Description : By the nineteenth century the British had ruled India for over a hundred years, and had consolidated their power over the sub-continent. Until 1858, when Queen Victoria assumed sovereignty following the Indian Rebellion, the country was run by the East India Company - by this time a hybrid of state and commercial enterprises and eloquently and fiercely attacked as intrinsically immoral and dangerous by Edmund Burke in the late 1700s. Seeking to go beyond the statutes and ceremony, and show the reality of the interactions between rulers and ruled on a local level, this book looks at one of the most interesting phenomena of British India - the 'Eurasians'. The adventurers of the early years of Indian occupation arrived alone, and in taking 'native' mistresses and wives, created a race of administrators who were 'others' to both the native population and the British ruling class. These Anglo-Indian people existed in the zone between the colonizer and the colonized, and their history provides a wonderfully rich source for understanding Indian social history, race and colonial hegemony.

Description : 'On the banks of the Thames it is a tremendous chapter of accidents'. As Henry James surveys London in 1888, he sums up what had fascinated urban observers for a century: the random and even accidental development of this unprecedented form of human settlement, the modern metropolis. By Accident or Design: Writing the Victorian Metropolis takes James at his word, arguing that accident was both a powerful metaphor and material context through which the Victorians arrested the paradoxes of metropolitan modernity and reconfigured understandings of form and change. Paul Fyfe shows how the material conditions of urban accidents offer new and compelling modes of analysis for intellectual and literary history. Through extensive archival study and interdisciplinary analysis of urban-industrial accidents, risk management, and civic improvements, By Accident or Design reclaims the metropolis as ground zero for some of the most important thinking about causation in the nineteenth century. It demonstrates the centrality of interdependent concepts of design and accident not only to metropolitan discourse, but also to current critical discourse about the formal and circulatory dynamics of Victorian metropolitan writing. Thus, this book offers a new vocabulary for the dialectics of the modern city and the signature forms of writing about it, including the newspaper, the illustrated periodical, the industrial novel, and urban broadsheets.


Phrenology And The Origins Of Victorian Scientific Naturalism

Description : Through a reassessment of phrenology, Phrenology and the Origins of Victorian Scientific Naturalism sheds light on all kinds of works in Victorian Britain and America which have previously been unnoticed or were simply referred to with a vague 'naturalism of the times' explanation. It is often assumed that the scientific naturalism familiar in late nineteenth century writers such as T.H. Huxley and John Tyndall are the effects of a 'Darwinian revolution' unleashed in 1859 on an unsuspecting world following the publication of The Origin of Species. Yet it can be misleading to view Darwin's work in isolation, without locating it in the context of a well established and vigorous debate concerning scientific naturalism. Throughout the nineteenth century intellectuals and societies had been discussing the relationship between nature and man, and the scientific and religious implications thereof. At the forefront of these debates were the advocates of phrenology, who sought to apply their theories to a wide range of subjects, from medicine and the treatment of the insane, to education, theology and even economic theories. Showing how ideas about naturalism and the doctrine of natural laws were born in the early phrenology controversies in the 1820s, this book charts the spread of such views. It argues that one book in particular, The Constitution of Man in Relation to External Objects (1828) by George Combe, had an enormous influence on scientific thinking and the popularity of the 'naturalistic movement'. The Constitution was one of the best-selling books of the nineteenth century, being published continuously from 1828 to 1899, and selling more than 350,000 copies throughout the world, many times more than Dawin's The Origin of Species. By restoring Combe and his work to centre stage it provides modern scholars with a more accurate picture of the Victorians' view of their place in Nature.
