need book recommendations, 19th century British history

Oct 2013
Jyväskylä, Finland
1. I need precisely speaking an intellectual history book.
(culture history book?). I'm not terribly well acquainted with the nuances of British cultural history, I'm afraid.

2. British history

3. Time period is precisely from Victorian era, towards Edwardian era, until WW1 ( from the 19th century until beginning of WW1 )

4.I also need a British political history book from the same time period Queen Victoria until WW1.

5. I need help for understanding liberals and conservatives in that time period. Increasing my understanding about the liberal party and conservative party would be great.

In contrast, I understand the Labour party little bit better. But if you have any suggestions about labour party, I can use those suggestions too.
