First Sentence
William Hazlitt was writing against capital punishment - against a method for the elimination of the 'useless' poor - which took the form in principle of suspending them from the neck until dead for stealing goods worth more than a shilling. Read the first page

Format: Paperback
Social exclusion is at the centre of current polical debate and policy making. The achievement of David Byrne's book is to clearly set out the key facts and issues in relation to social exclusion, whilst offering a passionate and engaged assessment of the political debates which cluster around 'social exclusion'.
Whilst many texts on poverty, disadvantaged communities and inequality are dry and technical in tone, Byrne communicates passion and emotion whilst maintainting the rigorous and systematic approach to academic exposition which one would expect from an Open University Press text.
In the conclusion, Byrne directly addresses the issue - 'what is to be done'. Unlike many authors who are interested in what should be done FOR 'the poor', Byrne is interested in the possibilty of of disadvantaged people organising for themselves. His roots in the Christian left are expressed in his considerations of what contribution to overcoming social exclusion might be resourced from the church.
