About this Item

Volume I: From Tudor Times to 18th Century., This work is about changing social attitudes towards children in Volume 1: English society and the resulting influences on social policy and legislation. The present volume deals with early idealistic policies and their ultimate failure, and the subsequent alternating patterns of benevolence and enthusiasm, indifference and neglect throughout the 17th and 18th centuries., vol. 2: From eighteenth century to the Children Act 1948., This volume covers the time in which problems caused by urbanization, industialization, the rapid increase in population, and failure to provide adequately for the wellfare of the children led to the new awakening of the national conscience. This volume demonstrated how, in this momentous period, deep concern for abuses brought about the demand for new legislation and some measure of community support for such children., Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1969 - 1973., xii., 346pp., 324pp., plates, hardback set . vol. 1 lacks d/j and has been stamped on f.ep.
