This volume consists of fifteen essays by leading scholars dealing with the Victorian editor and his influence on the culture of his time. The first section analyzes the relationship between Victorian editors and their audience. The essays show how editors effectively balanced fiction and politics, how social change effected periodical publishing, and how editors dealt with Victorian sexual and moral preoccupations. The second section places the editor in the context of his profession. By focusing on specific editors and their journals, the third section sheds additional light on the themes developed in the first two. To complete the book, a bibliographic essay offers new information about the published sources available for further research on the nineteenth-century editor.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A pioneering work in the study of Victorian periodicals, this volume is the first to take a long look at the Victorian editor and his influence in shaping the course of journalism in the 19th century .... Although not intended to be the definitive history of the Victorian editor, the collection nevertheless prepares the way and sets the standards for any future volumes. The Victorian press was the avenue by which the average citizen perceived the outside world, but the role of the editor in that process has not been studied in detail. The book is divided into three sections, Editors and Audience, ' The Context of Reading, ' and Some Leading Practitioners.' Further, the book offers several sharp individual portraits and an interesting survey in the Introduction of what might be called the rise and fall of the Victorian editor, the latter condition being brought on by difficulties of mechanization, expansion of audience, and an evergrowing administrative and financial superstructure. An outstanding bibliographical essay by the editor concludes this major reference. Required for all scholarly, academic, and graduate libraries, and recommended for upper-division undergraduates."-Choice
