Product Overview

Paul Slack's incisive analysis shows how the English came to believe between 1500 and 1740 that piecemeal improvement was more likely to be achieved than total social reformation. He examines social policy and institutions such as workhouses and hospitals in order to illustrate how
contemporaries tried to shape their social and moral environment, and how they defined the notion of welfare'.
