From the cover: Whos Who in Late Hanoverian Britain covers a period of British history exceptionally rich in culture, thought, and political activity. Its themes include the wars against revolutionary France, liberal and radical campaigns for reform of society, a new and turbulent phase in the Irish question, the evolution of a mature imperial power, the transforming effect of industrialism on a fast-growing population, and the abolition of slavery. Among the notables are poets William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Robert Southey, and William Blake; military heroes Lord Nelson and the Duke of Wellington; statesmen William Pitt and Charles James Fox; and philosophers Jeremy Bentham and Thomas Robert Malthus.
