This is the first detailed and systematic study of the social science of poverty as practiced by the Victorian experts who had so much influence on relief policy in this area, and who were among the founders of British social science. The book examines what they knew, or what they thought they knew, about the poor.

About the Author:

KATHLEEN C. MARTIN is Professor in the College of General Studies at Boston University. Drawing on her background in both sociology and history, she examines in her research the interplay of culture, theory and methodology in social science. She received her MA in Sociology from Ohio State University and her PhD in Comparative History from Brandeis University.

Review:

"Martin's concise study of Victorian and Edwardian poverty experts is both a revisionist history of ideas and a call for rethinking public policy in the 21st century... Recommended." —CHOICE
