Writings on the Poor Laws, Vol. 1(The Collected Works of Jeremy Bentham) by Jeremy Bentham, Michael Quinn



In these essays Bentham lays down the theoretical principles from which he develops his proposals for reform of the English poor laws in response to the perceived crisis in poor relief in the mid-1790s. These ideas had a significant influence on the Poor Law Amendment Act of 1834.
