By tracing the varied role of women as producers and distributors of welfare during the period 1780-1930 in both metropolitan and provincial contexts, this collection argues that philanthropy predated, shaped and co-existed with the formation of the "classical" welfare state. It highlights the bias of gender and class in social work.
