    Along with his narrative verve and vivid characters, Dickens is celebrated as a passionate opponent of cruelty and injustice. Taking four books - Nicholas Nickleby, Barnaby Rudge, American Notes and Martin Chuzzlewit - this provocative and cogently argued study demonstrates how his radicalism was embedded in a deeply traditional world view, to reveal a very different Dickens: the upholder of custom, law and order, authority and good behaviour.
