What The Victorians Got Wrong

About this book

The nineteenth century was an era of advance like no other in history. Railways were built, bridges constructed, rivers tamed, electricity harnessed, to the great benefit of all. But progress was only achieved at high cost. Impatience for achievement too often resulted in catastrophe and disaster.

The accounts of how the Victorian's could and did stumble into appalling errors of judgement offers a sobering counter balance to the often related tales of glorious successes.
