Poverty assistance and state assistance programs are at the forefront of the nation's mind with the economic turn-down brought about by COVID-19.
This book explores Tocqueville's sustained thought on pauperism, poverty assistance, and state assistance programs with an eye toward modern society, including highlighting the benefits of associative life and his concerns about social inequality.
The collection includes new translations of Tocqueville's works, including the first English translation of his Second Memoir, the original Memoir, a letter fragment considering pauperism in Normandy, and the ``Pauperism in America'' index to the Penitentiary Report. None of the individual works are currently in print in English.
Memoirs on Pauperism and Other Writings will be of great interest to scholars of poverty and social inequality, Tocqueville, 19th century history, and the history of political economy.
