The first detailed and systematic study of the social science of poverty as practiced by the Victorian experts who had so much influence on relief policy in this area, and who were among the founders of British social science. The book examines what they knew, or what they thought they knew, about the poor.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'...a bold and timely work of cultural history...this tightly-structured study makes for stimulating and suggestive reading...in terms of a combative and thought-provoking contribution to current welfare debate, I suggest that this book merits a much wider audience.' - Victoria Le Fevre, Reviews in History
