The Best Circles

By Leonore Davidoff

Social life for the middle and upper classes of the Victorian and Edwardian eras pivoted around a regular calendar of events – ‘the season’.

Leonore Davidoff probes beneath the glitter and ceremony of these social events to reveal that they were much more than an enjoyable way of filling in time. They were also a highly effective way of linking family life with public life and allocating a ‘place’ and ‘position’ to people in society.
