Based on research from primary sources, this book describes the development of the Scottish Poor Law as an instrument for the preservation of the old and destitute, and partially as a protection against famine. It shows the effect of the Poor Law of the later-18th century agrarian reorganization, the industrial revolution, Scottish urban development and the evangelical revival.
