Product description

Review

"Paul Slack's The English Poor Law, 1531-1782 is a well-informed and concise survey of recent scholarly research about social welfare legislation in early modern England." Elisabeth Cawthon, H-Net Reviews

"...this is an excellent book, especially for young scholars wishing to research the Old Poor Law. It provides a brief, yet thorough historical account, helpful bibliographic tools, and even a checklist of relevant statutes." David McCarter, Sixteenth Century Journal

Book Description

The poor law had a profound impact, playing a central role in social and political development from the Reformation to the Industrial Revolution. This book provides a concise synthesis of past scholarly work, explaining the origins and effects of this unique system of welfare.
