Edited by Andreas Gestrich, Elisabeth Grüner, and Susanne Hahn

  • Internationally comparative volume on spatial aspects of poverty and social policies for the poor in nineteenth and twentieth-century Europe
  • Methodologically innovative essays that introduce readers to a variety of disciplines and methods dealing with the 'spatial turn' in poverty research
  • Opens up new perspectives for research by strongly advocating for innovative comparative regional and local research rather than the construction of national welfare regimes
  • Gives the poor a voice by demonstrating that petitions for relief and other ego-documents by the poor can be integrated into analytical comparative frameworks of welfare research
