This work is the first to study the gentlemen's clubs that were an important feature the Late Victorian landscape in London, and the first to discover the secret history of clubmen and their world. The wealthy men of the British upper classes have often been segregated to the realm of biography or family history, lumped in with their middle-class rivals, or dismissed as irrelevant in the larger story of Victorian Britain. This book places the English gentleman at center stage, detailing how clubland dramatically shaped nineteenth and early twentieth-century ideas about gender, domesticity, power, class, and the city
"In this first academic history of the famed gentlemen's clubs of London, Amy Milne-Smith reveals these institutions at the height of their power and influence at the turn of the twentieth century, paying special attention to how clubmen defined masculinity and status for their generation. Based on extensive research in club archives along with newspapers, journals, diaries and memoirs, Milne-Smith takes us behind the majestic doors of these most exclusive clubs. Readers will find London Clubland not only an engaging account of clubs, but also a story of troubled marriage, contested urban space, shifting boundaries of class, and a robust masculine culture in decline"--Provided by publisher
