The author tries to make sense of the ideas and movements, institutions and practices that made the slums of London and 'slumming' seem so necessary to thousands of members of the 'comfortable classes' in the 19th and early 20th century. He explores the interplay of sexual and social politics at micro- and macro-levels.
