Most widely held works by Tim Hitchcock
Down and out in eighteenth-century London by Tim Hitchcock( )

17 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 1,410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"London in the eighteenth century was the greatest city in the world. It was a magnet that drew men and women from the rest of Britain and the world in huge numbers. If for a few the streets were paved with gold, for the majority it was a harsh world with little guarantee of money or food. For the poor and destitute, London's streets offered little more than the barest existence. Yet men, women and children found a great variety of ways to make a living out of sweeping roads, selling matches, singing ballads and performing all sorts of menial labour. Many of these activities, apart from the direct begging of the disabled, depended on an appeal to charity, but one often mixed with threats and promises. Down and Out in Eighteenth-Century London provides a remarkable insight into the lives of Londoners, for all of whom the demands of charity and begging were part of their everyday world."--Jacket

English sexualities, 1700-1800 by Tim Hitchcock( Book )

17 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book charts a series of complex interrelationships between changes in language and practice, and suggests that men were increasingly encouraged to invest their masculinity in an exclusive desire for the opposite sex, while women were pushed towards a sexual identity in which motherhood came to dominate, and in which female lust was denigrated or denied. At the same time, new homosexual and lesbian identities were likewise created and denigrated
Chronicling poverty : the voices and strategies of the English poor, 1640-1840 by Tim Hitchcock( Book )

20 editions published between 1996 and 2001 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the last twenty years, increasing numbers of historians specialising in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries have used primary sources - autobiographies, settlement and bastardy examinations, pauper letters and inventories, and legal records - to chronicle the lives of the poor." "In Chronicling Poverty the editors present some of the very best work in the field, based on original sources, and in doing so create a vivid insight into the culture and society of the English poor."--BOOK JACKET
London lives : poverty, crime and the making of a modern city, 1690-1800 by Tim Hitchcock( Book )

15 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book charts the experiences of hundreds of thousands of Londoners who found themselves submerged in poverty or prosecuted for crime, and surveys their responses to illustrate the extent to which plebeian Londoners influenced the pace and direction of social policy. It illuminates the lives of prison escapees, expert manipulators of the poor relief system, celebrity highwaymen, lone mothers and vagrants, revealing how they each played the system to the best of their ability in order to survive in their various circumstances of misfortune. In their acts of desperation, the authors argue that the poor and criminal exercised a profound and effective form of agency that changed the system itself, and shaped the evolution of the modern state. It also presents a pioneering account of the evolution of social policy and criminal justice in the eighteenth century, charts the lives of the poor and criminal and explores their vital role in the shaping of the modern world, and calls upon a new body of evidence and the latest digital technology to reconstruct the lives of non-elite eighteenth-century Londoners
