Casebook Review:

In this innovative look at nineteenth-century London, Lynda Nead offers a fresh account of modernity and metropolitan life. Taking a highly interdisciplinary approach, Nead charts the relationship between London's formation into a modern city in the 1860s and the emergence of new ways to produce and consume visual culture. She explores topics ranging from the emergence of obscenity legislation to the impact of gas lighting and glass on urban leisure.
