Reviews

'A thoughtful and provocative analysis from which all students of English social welfare will learn a great deal.' - Steve Hindle, University of Warwick, UK 'This admirable survey, which spans several conventional periods, is wide-ranging but always lucid. Particularly helpful is its discussion of changing ideas (about poverty, charity, and social responsibility) and how they affected responses at the local and national levels.' - Marjorie K. McIntosh, University of Colorado at Boulder, USA
