Noted British historian Walvin has written a companion volume to a Discovery Channel series in which he explores the relationship of modern British society to what it sees as the good old Victorian values. British politicians now call for a return to the supposed thrift, cleanliness, self-reliance, and national pride of Victoria's time; Walvin sees this as misleading. Complex problems of the time due to urbanization meant that many lived in crowded, filthy, disease-ridden homes to which the now-decried modern state was seen as the solution.

This is purportedly an examination of "Victorian values," but in reality it is mostly a neat history of urban social problems and how Victorians dealt with them. It is absolutely fascinating to read about where each of these came from, and how they developed from there. Walvin makes some great points relating to charities-upper class Victorians assumed that the poor were destitute through their own poor choices, and tried to help them in a piecemeal fashion. One final quote from the book: "We need to recognize that many of the 'values' were developed as a response to a contemporary problem or difficulty, not as the outcome of a prevailing Victorian strength or achievement.
