Civic Charity in a Golden Age by Anne McCants

Book Description

Using the Amsterdam Municipal Orphanage as a window through which readers can see the start of profound social and economic changes in early modern Amsterdam, this book explores the connections between the developing capitalist economy, the functioning of the government, and the provision of charitable services to orphans in Amsterdam during the 17th and 18th centuries, the period of the city's greatest prosperity and subsequent decline.
