    An interesting book on the terrible plight of destitute children in 19th century England The word Victorian doesn't really fit though; most of what Duckworth writes about is from before Victoria took the throne Loads of primary sources are uoted here You learn about the socialeconomic conditions that left children with pretty much no choice but to turn to crime children being punished the same ways as adults fines prison hulks transportation etc and efforts at rehabilitation of children Of course those problems are still very much in existence todayWhat the book lacks however is an argument Most historical texts have the author trying to prove a point but I couldn't find any in this book I kept thinking to myself Okay what is she getting at here It was vaguely frustrating
