Read by Gillian Hendrie

(4.5 stars; 5 reviews)

Subtitled, "A Cyclopaedia of the condition and earnings of those that will work, those that cannot work, and those that will not work." "The history of a people from the lips of the people themselves .. their labour, earnings, trials and sufferings, in their own unvarnished language, and to portray the condition of their homes and their families by personal observation of the places ..." "My earnest hope is that the book may serve to give the rich a more intimate knowledge of the sufferings, and the frequent heroism under those sufferings, of the poor ..." Henry Mayhew was a social researcher and journalist. He compiled a four-volume work in minute detail on the lives of the poor in London, of which this is the third, published in 1816. - Summary by Peter Yearsley (51 hr 25 min)
