An American in Victorian Cambridge


"An American in Victorian Cambridge" is a richly detailed account of student life in the Cambridge of the 1840s. The rationale for the book, which is as appealing today as it was then, is that this is pre-eminently a book about an American student at an English university. In this new edition, some substantial additions have been made.

Winner of the Society for Theatre Research Book Prize – 2016

New paperback, with contextualising timeline and biographies, published in association with the Society for Theatre Research

Published in paperback for the first time, this is the final part of Steve Nicholson’s definitive four-volume analysis of British theatre censorship from 1900 to 1968, based on previously undocumented material in the Lord Chamberlain’s Correspondence Archives in the British Library and the Royal Archives at Windsor.
