Why did slums and suburbs develop simultaneously? Were class antagonisms to blame? Why did the Victorians believe there was a housing problem? The history of housing between 1780 and 1914 encapsulates many problems associated with the transition from a largely rural to an overwhelmingly urban nation, whose unprecedented pace imposed immense tensions within society. This book reviews the recent arguments and guides the student of social history to further reading, making it an ideal introduction to a central issue in nineteenth-century history.

Traditional histories of the French Third Republic often overlook the extent to which concerns about the place of women and the health of the family influenced the course of government policy, particularly the direction of welfare reform. Combining the approaches of social and political history, Gender and the Politics of Social Reform in France, 1870-1914 offers a new perspective on women's lives in the Third Republic -- and on the emergence of the welfare state in general -- by looking at the attitudes, actions, and policies of the men who held political power. Addressing themes in the newly invigorated field of welfare-state history, contributors to this volume offer evidence that social reform in France began far earlier than is usually supposed and was a response by republican politicians and social activists to a declining population growth rate. As this demographic crisis inspired efforts to improve maternal and child health and increase the birth rate, motherhood was redefined as a public mission deserving of public support. Even though the eventual reforms resulted in greater recognition of women's role in the proper functioning of society and provided for programs beneficial to infants, the legislation enacted by the men in power was decidedly patriarchal in its scope, treating women as children rather than equals. Contributors are Elinor Accampo, Linda L. Clark, Rachel G. Fuchs, Theresa McBride, Mary Lynn Stewart, and Judith F. Stone. "This important and timely collection of essays is a valuable contribution to this reinvigorated scholarly field. The history of the welfare state has for too long been in the suffocating grip of specialists in institutional historywith no vision of the wider historical setting, or has been regarded as an addendum to the history of labor organization and revolutionary socialism. This volume argues clearly and persuasively for a new orientation." -- Robert Nye, Oregon State University

This mongraph reasserts the primacy of property in political theorising. Arguing that the determination of property rights is part of the justification of the state, MacDonald notes the failure of much current philosophising to take account of this role when setting out the normative arguments for legitimate political authority. MacDonald criticises current philosophical definitions of property as a bundle-of-rights, arguing that for normative purposes, property is a right of exclusion in rem. Thereby MacDonald escapes the interminable moral and legal arguments over property - such as questions of Lockean labour theory, self-ownership, and indigenous historical injustice - that have dominated recent political philosophy. Instead, the book focuses on the failure of libertarian and liberal egalitarian theories of justice to produce a plausible account of both legitimate political authority's right to regulate property, and the principles upon which that regulation ought to occur. The book will be of interest to scholars of political philosophy and theory, especially those engaged in the contemporary ideas of justice, legitimacy and the justification of the state.

Market forces - Adam Smith's invisible hand - have never operated unimpeded in any economic system. As this book shows, even the successful merchant communities of early modern Europe were directed by the conscious plans of individuals and associations; the archetypal markets were imperfect.
