Past and Present is a book by Thomas Carlyle. It was published in April in England and the following month in the United States. It combines medieval history with criticism of 19th-century British society. Carlyle wrote it in seven weeks as a respite from the harassing labor of writing Cromwell. The Poor Law had a profound impact on English society. Designed to reform the poor as much as to relieve poverty, it also shaped institutions of government and determined people's expectations and assumptions about social welfare. The English Poor Law, provides a concise synthesis of recent scholarly work together with full references, explaining the origins of this unique system of.

In Earl Grey, the Prime Minister, set up a Poor Law Commission to examine the working of the poor Law system in their report published in , the Commission made several recommendations to Parliament. As a result, the Poor Law Amendment Act was passed. The Poor Law Commission intended (or said they intended) to allow the new Poor Law Boards in manufacturing areas to continue out-door relief, but opponents of the New Poor Law held that the safest way to defend out-door relief and the rest of the status quo was to prevent the New Poor Law administrative framework becoming established. Hence they strove to prevent new Poor Law Boards .

Graham Goodlad considers the background to the reform of the Poor Law in and its impact on society. Graham Goodlad | Published in History Review Issue 38 December At the beginning of the nineteenth century, the poorest members of English society were the responsibility of the individual parishes in which they lived.   Past and Present (), which opens with a visit to a workhouse, was written as a response to the economic crisis which began in the early ’s. This book, like its predecessor, Chartism (), and The Latter-Day Pamphlets (), presents a further analysis of the condition of England question.
