The Poor Law Amendment Act of 1834 is one of the most important pieces of social legislation ever enacted. Its principles and the workhouse system dominated attitudes to welfare provision for the next 80 years. This new Seminar Study explores the changing ideas to poverty over this period and assesses current debates on Victorian attitudes to the poor. David Englander reviews the old system of poor relief; he considers how the New Poor Law was enacted and received and looks at how it worked in practice. The chapter on the Scottish experience will be particularly welcomed, as will Dr Englander's discussion of the place of the Poor Law within British history.

It is often assumed that the Weimar Republic was bound to fail due to the harsh terms of the Versailles Settlement. Professor Hiden dispels this simplistic view and shows that it was a complex set of factors which finally brought Hitler to power. This clear and balanced study is now fully revised - for the first time since its publication in 1974 - to take account of the latest research.

SEMINAR STUDIES IN HISTORYEdited by Roger Lockyer(Emeritus Reader in History, in the University of London)This famous series examines key themes in British, European and World history in short, succinct volumes. The text is supported by primary material in a Documents section, a full bibliography and an index; where appropriate there are maps, chronologies and glossaries. All the books in the series are written by experts in the field who are not only familiar with the latest research but have often contributed to it. Works of scholarship in their own right, the books also provide a survey of current historical interpretations. Longman has now inaugurated a major programme of renewal and expansion for Seminar Studies, with many new titles and new editions in the pipeline. Existing books are being re-presented in a larger, more reader-friendly format as they reprint; and new books and new editions are being reset into an entirely new page design. Peter the Great was an unusual man and a most unusual tsar. His reign (1682-1725) had a momentous impact on the development of modern Russia and a study of it is crucial for an understanding of Russia's development from backwater to twentie

First published in 1988, Alison Brown's The Renaissance soon established itself as one of the most popular and useful books on this complex topic. For this expanded Second Edition the author has rewritten the text entirely in the light of the wealth of literature published over the past decade. It contains two new chapters, one on the rise of lordships and the impact of the Black Death and one on Renaissance theatre. As ever, the main focus of the book is on the influence of classical ideas on Italy, and although Florence is still central to the book its uniqueness is now viewed more critically.

Armenfürsorge und Alltagsbewältigung in Stadt und Land

Author: Anke Sczesny,Rolf Kießling,Johannes Burkhardt

So vielfältig die Forschungen zur institutionalisierten Armenfürsorge sind, so wenig wissen wir doch noch über die Menschen, die von Armut betroffen waren. Dies versuchen die in diesem Band versammelten Beiträge aus unterschiedlichen Perspektiven zu erhellen: die städtische, ländliche, jüdische und geschlechterspezifische Armut werden an konkreten Beispielen geschildert. Es geht um Auswirkungen von Armut auf das Zusammenleben, um zentrale, auf die Aufklärung zurückgehende Kategorisierungen von Armut, um das Leben der Armen, wie es in ihren Briefen aufscheint. Im Mittelpunkt steht nicht so sehr, wie viele Arme es gab und wie arm diese Menschen waren, sondern wie sie mit ihrer Not umgingen und wie sie diese bewältigten oder empfanden. Derartige, bisher wenig beachtete Aspekte in den Blick zu nehmen, dazu will dieser Band anregen.
