Decency and Disorder: The Age of Cant 1789-1837 [9780571224692]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Brilliant young historian Ben Wilson explores a time when licentious Britain tried to straighten out its moral code, ridding itself of its boisterous pastimes, plain-speaking and drunkenness - raising uncomfortable but fascinating parallels with our own age. Decency and Disorder is about the generation who grew up during the turmoil of the Napoleonic Wars, and some of its most exciting figures.
AUTHOR: Ben Wilson was born in 1980 and studied history at Pembroke College, Cambridge as an undergraduate and graduate. The Observer said of him on the publication of his first book, THE LAUGHTER OF TRIUMPH: William Hone and the Fight for the Free Press: Ben Wilson may only be 25, but he is already an exceptional talent.
