Abstract des Bandes:

In many ways, the European welfare state constituted a response to the new forms of social fracture and economic turbulence that were born out of industrialization — challenges that were particularly acute for groups whose integration into society seemed the most tenuous. Covering a range of national cases, this volume explores the relationship of weak social ties to poverty and how ideas about this relationship informed welfare policies in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. By focusing on three representative populations — neglected children, the homeless, and the unemployed — it provides a rich, comparative consideration of the shifting perceptions, representations, and lived experiences of social vulnerability in modern Europe.
