Rezensionen
"Strong's intensive use of archival resources offers a significant contribution to understanding the international experiences of

working class travelers from Britain who, through their travels, continued to reassess rapid social and industrial change at home ... in its overall quality of research and writing this monograph should continue to be of interest for scholars of nineteenth and early twentieth-century Britain interested in international travel as envisioned and experienced by members of the working classes and liberal reformers." - Cercles
