Description

Founded in 1870 The Century Illustrated Monthly Magazine offered its predominantly upper-middle-class readership historical and biographical essays, serialized novels, scientific and technological updates, and discussions of contemporary events and issues. This study examines the worldview projected by Century editors and how those editors sought to slant issues according to their own value system. This fascinating book is a unique contribution to periodical studies and will interest literary and cultural historians and scholars.
