"This edition of The Instruction of a Christen Woman is the first to provide the modern reader with the complete text of the single most influential book in Tudor England concerning women and how they should live their lives." "This old-spelling edition of The Instruction of a Christen Woman includes a substantial introduction that sets the book within its biographical, historical, and generic contexts and establishes its history as a printed text in eight succeeding sixteenth-century editions that reflect the social, religious, and political changes of that age."--Jacket.

"'I wish we were able to eliminate poverty completely in this city.' Those words echo a sentiment that could have been written yesterday, but represent the feelings of Juan Luis Vives, a Spanish humanist living in Bruges in 1526. The urban problems of sixteenth-century Bruges seem very familiar to the modern reader: poverty, overcrowding, crime, the problems of the mentally ill, and the issue of the responsibility of government for the care of the poor. Published in 1526, On Assistance to the Poor was Vives's effort to bring forward these questions to the City Council of Bruges, and have them addressed by local government. His distinctive development of a single integrated system out of the several practices already in use in Northern Europe presaged the English Poor Laws of 1601 and later laws in the New World." "This edition, originally published in 1971 with an introduction, translation, and commentary by Alice Tobriner, is a valuable primary source in Renaissance social history."--Jacket.
