Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book is about continuity and change in early nineteenth-century Britain. Against the background of an emerging industrial state, the popularization of liberal laissez-faire principles, and the rise of a class-based society, it examines the revival of traditional paternal ideals and considers their influence upon the development of social policy. Poor laws, social distress, child labor, and factory reform provide a focus for the analysis. The implications of the revival for the emergence of the collective or welfare state is an important theme.

Book News Annotation:

Lawes (history, U. of New England, NSW, Australia) explores a little-studied "lost cause" from the period, focusing on the paternalist policy proposals and political fate of their proponent, Michael Thomas Sadler. The roots of Sadler's reformist ideas on society, the poor, factory and child labor; the development of Poor Laws; factory reforms; and the concerted reaction to these proposals by the liberal leaders of the new economy are examined using careful study of primary sources.
