Coping with Change. British Society 1780 - 1914.

£12.99

Product description

Coping with Change examines the changes that occurred in Britain during the nineteenth and early-twentieth century. The opening chapters provide the economic context for the book especially the character of economic change and continuity. This is followed by three chapters that consider agricultural and industrial, communication and demographic developments. The next tranche of chapters examine the social problems created by changes in towns, the public’s health, housing, poverty, the nature of work, education and crime and leisure and the ways in which government sought to regulate these activities. Chapter 17 draws on these chapters and provides an overview of the nature of government in the nineteenth and early-twentieth century as it grappled with the practicalities of social reform. Religion is the subject of Chapters 18 and 19 while Chapters 20-23 consider the vexed nature of class in the nineteenth century. The book ends with a chapter on the end of the nineteenth century.
