The concept of eccentricity was central to how people in the 19th century understood their world. This book explores how, from the turn of the century, discourses of eccentricity were established to make sense of individuals who did not seem to fit within an increasingly organized social and economic order.

Review:

'"A lavishly illustrated, well-written book on a fascinating topic."
—British Society for Literature and Science

"Recommended."
—Choice

"Carroll persuasively establishes the historical specificity of eccentricity to nineteenth-century scientific, literary, and popular culture, as well as the formative way eccentricity functioned in relation to scientific disciplines."
—History and Philosophy of the Life Sciences

"Original and engaging . . . Caroll's book makes a compelling case for the historical investigation of these figures."
—History Today

"This highly creative and easily readable work offers us a new and insightful series of categories for historical analysis and research."
—Isis
