The rural world, 1780-1850 : social change in the English countryside by Pamela Horn( Book )

18 editions published between 1980 and 2019 in English and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, first published in 1980, the author draws a vivid picture of what country life was like for the vast majority of English villagers--agricultural labourers, craftsmen and small farmers--during a period of rapid agricultural development. This study analyses the influence of the enclosure movement on farming methods and on the structure of village life, and examines the devastating effects of the Napoleonic wars on English society. The Rural World is based on a wide range of sources, including parliamentary papers, contemporary letters, diaries and account books, and official records such as those relating to the Poor Law and the courts. It provides a fascinating overview of all aspects of rural life--from employment to home conditions, education, charity, crime, the role of religion and the influence of politics--during a critical period in English history.

The Victorian town child by Pamela Horn( Book )

14 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As nineteenth-century Britain became increasingly urbanized and industrialized, the number of children living in towns grew rapidly. At the same time, Horn considers the increasing divisions within urban society, not only between market towns and major manufacturing and trading centers, but within individual towns, as rich and poor became more segregated. During the Victorian period, public attitudes toward children and childhood shifted dramatically, often to the detriment of those at the lower end of the social scale--including paupers and juvenile delinquents. Drawing on original research, including anecdotes, first-hand accounts, and a wealth of photographs, The Victorian Town Child describes in detail the changing lives of all classes of Victorian town children, from those of prosperous business and professional families to working-class families, where unemployment and overcrowding were particular problems. Horn also examines the issues of juvenile labor and exploitation, how factory work and education were combined, how crime and punishment were dealt with among children, and the changes in health and infant death rates over the period."--Publisher description

Life and labour in rural England, 1760-1850 by Pamela Horn( Book )

13 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and Italian and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Major developments in rural life occurred between 1760 and 1850 and many of the greatest writers in English literature lived during this period. Factors such as the pressure of the war years, problems of adjustment during the post-war agricultural depression and the influence of rising industrialisation upon rural trades and crafts are all illustrated in this book, by contemporary literary and factual sources. Pamela Horn contrasts the views of writers like Mary Russell Mitford, Oliver Goldsmith, William Barnes, John Clare and Elisabeth Gaskell with examples from newspapers and other printed material, such as Lloyd's Evening Post, Cobbett's Political Register, and parliamentary papers. The full complexities of a new social and industrial order are reflected in the selected extracts of manuscript material, combined with published literary and factual accounts

8 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines how women responded to the new challenges and the difficulties of those years, from the revival of the round of High Society by the social elite, against a background of sometimes vast personal and financial losses, to the lives of the new middle-class professionals, who found social as well as domestic freedom, and working-class women employed in the still traditional milieu of factory and domestic service - as well as those who found their way on to the shop or restaurant floor." "For many, the decade was a time of hardship, and Dr. Horn also looks at how women managed to make ends meet." "Drawing on family papers, contemporary publications and archive research, this book, complemented by a wealth of photographs, cartoons and other illustrations, presents a vivid picture of what women's lives were like during the period. It will appeal to students of women's history, social historians and to those with a general interest in the subject."--Jacket

Young offenders : juvenile delinquency from 1700 to 2000 by Pamela Horn( Book )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Young Offenders examines the way in which attitudes - and the law itself - have evolved in dealing with juvenile wrongdoing from the early eighteenth century to the end of the twentieth. By the use of court and prison records, parliamentary papers, newspapers, the writings of reformers and other records, such as those covering transportation and life in the overseas penal colonies, it considers the way in which the punishment of the young and the definition of delinquency itself have developed. The gender difference between boys' misdeeds, often involving theft and violence, and girls' offences, which frequently relate to sexual and moral matters, is also considered. The book shows how attempts at reforming offenders by the creation of purpose-built institutions have met with disillusion and discouragement and have been followed by a reversion to harsher treatment. The reminisces of youngsters who have passed through the criminal justice system over the years add a personal dimension to the debate"--Book jacket
