"The book deals with the pre-industrial background in which housing problems are rooted, with the decay of towns and the unsuccessful attempts to better their condition by public health reforms, by charitable agencies and by building societies; and with legislative action in Parliament towards housing reform."--Page 4 of cover.

Her knowledge has been complemented by her husband's experience of housing problems gained from his architectural practice and from his service on the Housing Advisory Committee of the Scottish Development department. ***'The first comprehensive history of the housing of the working class in Britain, this study will be of interest to undergraduate and postgraduate students taking courses in Social History, Social Administration, Social Medicine, Public Health, Town Planning, Architecture and Liberal Studies. Mrs Gauldie worked until 1970 in the Department of Modern History, University of Dundee, and has been since then Visiting Lecturer in The School of Architecture, Dundee.'
