Set against a backdrop of royal madness, political intrigue, the birth of modern celebrity, the French revolution, American independence and the Napoleonic Wars, UPROAR! follows three Georgian satirists – Rowlandson, Gillray and Cruikshank – as they lampoon those in power, from the Prince Regent to Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire. Their prints and illustrations deconstruct the political and social landscape with surreal and razor-sharp wit, as they vie with each other to create the most iconic images of the day.

Alice Loxton writes with verve and energy, never failing to convince us that the three profoundly altered British humour, setting the stage for everything from Gilbert and Sullivan to Private Eye and Spitting Image today. This is a book that will cause readers to reappraise everything they think they know about genteel Georgian London and see it for what it was – a time of UPROAR!
