Periodicals in the Victorian era portrayed and reinforced gender notions and ideals. Indeed, the Victorian periodical press was a critical cultural site for the representation of competing gender ideologies. This is a full-length book examining masculinities and femininities as defined and interrogated in these periodicals. It investigates readers, editors, and journalists; and it considers the power of the press at home, in the domestic space, in metropolitan centres and at the margins of empire. The work is based on archival research into a wide range of publications from the 1830s to the fin de siecle; from enduring intellectual heavyweight quarterlies through more ephemeral women's and working men's magazines, to magazines for boys and girls. The study is informed by the theories and approaches of media and cultural studies and women's studies. A valuable appendix supplies information about the many periodicals of the period mentioned in the book.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This is a sensitive study that engages with the most challenging aspects of popular writing ... fascinating chapters ...' The Times Literary Supplement
'... wide ranging and important ... a seamless text.' George Eliot Review
"This is a good book and an interesting one. Its treatment of women editors is excellent, as are its analyses of working of gender within commodity culture." George Mariz, Western Washington University
"The book is beautifully designed, with several illustrations, and offers a glimpse into obscure, sometimes short-lived magazines that might otherwise be lost to historical memory." Jane Marcellus, Middle Tennesse State University, American Journalism
