The Companion emphasizes the importance of the Crimean War through both the complex political rhetorical surrounding the Circumlocution Office, and Dickenss depiction of Daniel Doyce, as well as through many other textual details. The Companion also makes important distinctions between administrative reform and civil service reform, and points to differences between boards of inquiry, committees and reports that conventional wisdom has frequently confused.

Of special interest are the notes on the political figures of the day - Lord Palmerston, Lord Aberdeen, Sir Charles Treveylan and Austen Henry Layard, among many others - and on the debates in the House of Commons that were reported by The Times and that eventually found expression in Little Dorrit.
