Paula Bartley's Queen Victoria examines Victorian Britain from the perspective of the Queen. Victoria's personal and political actions are discussed in relation to contemporary shifts in Britain's society, politics and culture, examining to what extent they did - or did not - influence events throughout her reign. Drawing from contemporary sources, including Queen Victoria's own diaries, as well as the most recent scholarship, the book contextualises Victoria historically by placing her in the centre of an unparalleled period of innovation and reform, in which the social and political landscape of Britain, and its growing empire, was transformed. Balancing Victoria's private and public roles, it will examine the cultural paradox of the Queen's rule in relation to the changing role of women: she was a devoted wife, prolific mother and obsessive widow, who was also Queen of a large Empire and Empress of India. Marrying cultural history, gender history and other histories 'from below' with high politics, war and diplomacy, this is a concise and accessible introduction to Queen Victoria's life for students of Victorian Britain and the British Empire.

    While the march of the iPad into the education environment seems inevitable (and probably good) there are quite a lot of bugs to work out, as you quite rightly point out.

    Is there any good reason why many of these types of sites do not provide H1 page title tags for users? Seems most odd, and I cannot think of a logical reason why they're left out/unavailable. I've found this to me a huge drawback with Weebly; indeed, I find Weebly highly problematic on many counts, and getting worse, not better. The ONLY reason I've stuck with them the past couple of years is because they provide unlimited storage space, Thanks in advance.

      squarespace provides hosting services as part of their package, so if you build a website using Squarespace, you can't host it with your local host. You can only host your site with Squarespace as their platform has proprietary technology so that certain functions can only function within their own operating environment.

      Unfortunately there is no comparison for iPad /tablet usage . The trend is towards mobile devices and the deal breaker for myself and many others is that any website builder I use needs to be editable on my iPad , especially since I'm about to purchase an iPad Pro . Cheers , Dave .
