The decade of Victoria's Golden Jubilee saw the first industrial strikes at home; continuing imperial expansion, despite setbacks such as the Boers' revolt and the Mahdi in Sudan; the art of the Pre- Raphaelites; and writers such as Hardy, RL Stevenson and Rider Haggard. This volume covers the various facets of Victorian life and culture in chapters on the Queen, leisure, the arts, social issues and empire.
