Notes

First edition of Booth's "classic in the literature of poverty" (ODNB). "Booth's colossal self-confidence, his burning sense of injustice coupled with unswerving devotion to his purpose, and his deep sympathy with the unfortunate, made of him an evangelist and an organiser of the first order" (PMM).
