MEDIA REVIEWS

'In their many and varied ways, the articles in Dickens and the Children of Empire interrogate modern constructions of childhood and empire, as espoused or subverted in works by writers such as Dickens, and examine the relationship between images of infantilism and imperialism. All of the articles in this diverse and imaginative collection will prove an invaluable resource for any student, researcher, or lecturer interested in Dickens, imperialism, and images of childhood...' - Jonathan Taylor, Loughborough University, MLR
