Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This study provides an accessible and authoritative account of poverty and deviance during the early modern period, informed by those new perspectives on the role of the poor themselves in the provision of welfare services characteristic of much recent social history. Contrary to the once-traditional historical emphasis on the ameliorative role of individual reformers, Professor JÜtte's account looks much more closely at the poor themselves, and the complex network of social and communal relationships they inhabited.

Synopsis:
