The Childhood of the Poor : Welfare in Eighteenth-Century London Hardback
by Alysa Levene
Was there a notion of childhood for the labouring classes, and was it distinctive from that of the elite?
Examining pauper childhood, family life and societal reform, Levene asks whether new models of childhood in the eighteenth century affected the treatment of the young poor, and reveals how they and their families were helped through hard times.
