The Victorian town child by Pamela Horn( Book )

12 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 541 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

Children's work and welfare, 1780-1890 by Pamela Horn( Book )

16 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This short book provides a succinct account of changes in children's work and welfare in Britain between 1780 and 1890. It examines both the scale and the nature of child employment and the changing attitude of society towards it at a time when Britain was becoming the 'workshop of the world'. The further development of industry in the second half of the nineteenth century meant that the need for juvenile workers declined. At the same time the efforts of philanthropists and the State led to legal curbs on the kinds of jobs children could perform and the minimum age at which they could commence them. The author concludes that the century after 1780 saw a progressive lengthening of childhood as a stage of life, and that by 1890 children had been recognised as 'special cases' in need of protective legislation. However, for the poorest and most disadvantaged families life remained a struggle, and children continued to pick up a living where they could

Women in the 1920s by Pamela Horn( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in English and held by 197 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."--BOOK JACKET

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

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 107 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
