About the Author

Lynda Nead teaches history of art at Birkbeck College, University of London.


"There has been a raft of books on London... But none is likely to be as scholarly, as clever or as necessary as Lynda Nead's Victorian Babylon... Nead has written a wonderful book that changes the way we think about cities." Kathryn Hughes, The Daily Telegraph; "compelling... Nead is writing as an academic, and so it is fascinating to find what might otherwise be dismissed as a novelist's fantasy here given a theoretical underpinning in impeccably sourced and measured prose." Tom Holland, Literary Review; "This genuinely interdisciplinary study... makes a major contribution to our knowledge of the lived experience of the Victorian city." Timothy Barringer, Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians; "Provocative and brilliant." Susan P. Casteras, Nineteenth Century Studies; "Splendid... Nead brings an art historian's fine sense of visual detail; indeed, one of the most striking features of the book is the wonderful illustrative material." John Marriott, History Today; "An intriguing study of London at the crossroads of modern history... Well-researched and insightful." Rebecca Ittner, Victorian Homes; "An evocative and visually stunning account of the shifting geographies, temporalities, and visions of mid-Victorian London... Well-researched and beautifully written." Erika, D. Rappaport, Albion; "Nead not only provides a more accurate regendering of the historical townscape but enriches our understanding of modern urban experience." Peter Bailey, Journal of Social History"
