Peter Townsend: Poverty in the UK

Classic Collection

It was widely believed that poverty in Britain had been all but eliminated with the construction of the welfare state and post-war affluence. But while politicians were telling people they had never had it so good, social scientists were re-discovering poverty. The most influential of these was Peter Townsend, whose study of poverty in the 1960’s and 70’s was one of the most detailed ever undertaken in Britain.
