Christianity and Social Service in Modern Britain: The Disinherited Spirit (2006)
<p><strong>Author: Frank Prochaska.<br /> Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2006</strong><br /> </p>
Prochaska is probably the most readable contemporary historian of UK philanthropy and readers will gain useful insights from any of his publications. The focus of this latest book is the importance of Christianity as an inspiration for political and social behaviour in the nineteenth century and an examination of the forces that undermined both religion and philanthropy in the twentieth century.
