Opis: Cultures of Charity - Nicholas Terpstra

Renaissance Italians pioneered radical changes in ways of helping the poor, including orphanages, workhouses, pawnshops, and women's shelters. Nicholas Terpstra shows that gender was the key factor driving innovation. Most of the recipients of charity were women. The most creative new plans focused on features of women's poverty like illegitimate births, hunger, unemployment, and domestic violence. Signal features of the reforms, from forced labor to new instruments of saving and lending, were devised specifically to help young women get a start in life. Cultures of Charity is the first book to see women's poverty as the key factor driving changes to poor relief. These changes generated intense political debates as proponents of republican democracy challenged more elitist and authoritarian forms of government emerging at the time. Should taxes fund poor relief? Could forced labor help build local industry? Focusing on Bologna, Terpstra looks at how these fights around politics and gender generated pioneering forms of poor relief, including early examples of maternity benefits, unemployment insurance, food stamps, and credit union savings plans. Terpstra's intimate and human study of Bologna's attempts to deal with the life cycle of poverty especially that of women provides a virtual comparative history of the troubled relationship between rich and poor in early modern Europe. This is the new social and cultural history at its best rich with significant findings, livened with everyday human details, and sensitively evoked by a master historian.--Guido Ruggiero, University Of Miami
