Booknews
Expanding knowledge of the enduring institution beyond the lurid studies of abuses in the sweated trades, Lane (social history, U. of Warwick) discusses such issues as leisure, formal and on-the- job education, the social status of the various occupations, prospects after qualification, sexual abuse, occupational health, and other aspects. Her study also provides insight into the course of the different trades during the early modern and modern periods. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
