The Oxford Handbook of Charles Dickens is a comprehensive and up-to-date collection on Dickens's life and works. It includes original chapters on all of Dickens's writing and new considerations of his contexts, from the social, political, and economic to the scientific, commercial, and religious. The contributions speak in new ways about his depictions of families, environmental degradation, and improvements of the industrial age, as well as the law, charity, and communications. His treatment of gender, his mastery of prose in all its varieties and genres, and his range of affects and dramatization all come under stimulating reconsideration. His understanding of British history, of empire and colonization, of his own nation and foreign ones, and of selfhood and otherness, like all the other topics, is explained in terms easy to comprehend and profoundly relevant to global modernity.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This will be a valuable resource for all Dickens readers, and it will complement any reading of Dickens's prose. * S.A. Parker, CHOICE *
Altogether, the editors are to be congratulated in eliciting and compiling so much excellent work...students and postgraduates will find it invaluable. It is a full and trustworthy volume, exemplary in its scholarship and offering a clear exposition of the current healthy state of play of Dickens studies in the academic world. * Jenny Hartley, The Dickensian *
a comprehensive and wide-ranging set of essays on the present state of Dickens studies, including further reading suggestions at the end of each chapter, as well as frequent reflections on the directions future work in the field might profitably take ... This is a valuable reference work: impressive in its scope, thoughtfully organised, and with illuminating insights on Dickens dotted throughout. * Benjamin Westwood, Nineteenth-Century Contexts *
offers a gold-standard survey, with sections on life and career, major works, context and worldview, and many more. * Pamela K. Gilbert, Studies in English Literature 1500-1900 *
