9780140205954: Family and Kinship in East London (Pelican)

Although housing in Bethnal Green was often appalling, a complex network of relatives - families of three generations held together by the powerful mother-daughter bond at the centre - was always available to provide mutual aid and a sense of community. It was when families were rehoused in the immaculate new estates outside London, miles away from their kin, that the vital support system broke down, with disastrous effects on the quality of people's lives. This famous book, based on a major three-year research project, makes clear how planners have frequently failed to understand real human needs; it also provides a marvellous portrait of the resilience and generosity of spirit which went at least some way to compensate for the deptivations of inner-city working-class life.

From the Inside Flap :

"A wonderfully vivid, accurately observed portrait of a way of life, whose value as a historical document increases as the East End of small factories, docks and busy streets of row houses disappears, and with it the culture of the old Bethnal Green."—Dolores Hayden, author of The Grand Domestic Revolution
