Working-Class Self-Help in Nineteenth-Century England : Responses to Industrialization, Hardback Book

Working-Class Self-Help in Nineteenth-Century England : Responses to Industrialization Hardback

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: The History of Social Welfare series

Description

First published in 1995, this book provides a readable survey of the three major forms of working-class self-help in nineteenth century England: the trade unions, the friendly societies and the co-operative movement.

It is accessible to an introductory student readership as well as providing a critical appraisal of all types and forms of self-help available to the industrial working-class.

Unlike former studies, the author examines trade unionism alongside friendly societies and the co-operative movement and shows how each developed in response to the challenge of industrialization and the demands of urban industrial life.

The strengths and limitations of self-help approaches are assessed and wider issues of working-class culture and identity are examined. This book will be of interest to those studying the history of social welfare, class and industrial Britain.
