5.0 out of 5 stars The mindset behind 19th century state intervention explained, 7 Sep 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Poverty and Poor Law Reform in Nineteenth-Century Britain, 1834-1914: From Chadwick to Booth (Seminar Studies In History) (Paperback)
Why was the Victorian workhouse quite so draconian? and why did a so called "reform" act appear to do so little to alleviate the suffering of Britain's poor. This concise book explains the motives behind 19th century regimes of suffering and how, as the century progressed, the thinking behind these regimes was proven to be floored.
