"This book is a thoughtful, engaging, and exceptionally well-written analysis of the tensions between the idealist and materialist discourses of professionalism in the mid-Victorian novel. Colon demonstrates that the mid-Victorian novel is central to formulating and criticizing the conflicts within professional self-definition. Colon's insight that the formulation of professional ideology is simultaneous with self-critique and self-reform is particularly fascinating and helps us revise our histories of the professions." - Francesca Sawaya, University of Oklahoma
