Workhouse to Welfare State *NEW*


As long as people have been living together in societies there have been those less fortunate than others. The problem has always been: who should look after these people if they could not look after themselves?  This course will consider how and why attitudes towards the poor and poverty changed from the middle ages to the present day.
