About this product
- DescriptionPublished in 1832, Illustrations of Political Ecomy established Harriet Martineau as both a successful and controversial author and a pioneer of nineteenth-century social problem writing. This widely read series of didactic stories popularized political ecomy, making it accessible to audiences by vividly dramatizing issues such as overpopulation and labour strikes. Illustrations of Political Ecomy marks a pivotal moment in which literature and politics came together, laying the foundation for the realism and social commentary of later Victorian vels. This Broadview edition contains a critical introduction and a rich selection of historical documents, including contemporary reviews of Illustrations and writings on population growth, factory conditions, and working-class life.
