Pauperland: Poverty And The Poor In Britain
The prolific Jeremy Seabrook empties his intellectual pockets
Were the poor in medieval times on the lookout for some lovely filth and an autonomous collective, as Monty Python might have us believe? How has poverty evolved to be portrayed as the greatest threat to social order? Jeremy Seabrook discusses his new book and suggests the poor have become a scapegoat for politicians and the media across the eras. General admission.

"This is a beautifully written book that suggests that our current debates about welfare dependency and entitlement are nothing new."
