Poverty and Society

Gertrude Himmelfarb defines and discusses poverty by tracing its Western conceptual evolution from the early modern period through Victorian England.

At the time of this interview, Himmelfarb, a trustee of the National Humanities Center, was professor of history at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. Her books include Darwin and the Darwinian Revolution, Victorian Minds: A Study of Intellectuals in Crisis and Ideologies in Transition, and On Liberty and Liberalism: The Case of John Stuart Mill. 

This edition of Soundings was conducted by Wayne J. Pond.
