Wage labour now became the principal form of employment with the development of industrial technology and the extension of the division of labour and specialisation, although poor people were significantly to lose their long-term rights to land that they had in feudal societies. Politically, there was to be the growth and consolidation of the centralised nation state with formalised boundaries and frontiers, the growth and extension of state institutions with their bureaucratic forms of administration and myriad officials, ever-increasing systematic forms of surveillance and control and the development of representative democracy and political party systems.

Thomas Malthus (1959) had famously argued during the nineteenth century that, if unchecked, population would grow geometrically while, at the same time, agricultural product would increase only arithmetically. Disaster, it was argued, had only been averted by the three periodical population controls of famine, plague and war and, therefore, in such a world children – or more accurately, little people – were of little intrinsic value to society and invariably an economic liability. Malthus was a political economist and was concerned with what he perceived to be the decline of living conditions in an England which was becoming rapidly industrialised and urbanised with consistently appalling living conditions for the vast majority of poor working people who had emigrated to the new towns and cities from the countryside.

There was, therefore, a demand for state and voluntary welfare measures designed to increase ‘national efficiency’ among influential social groups who previously had been hostile or indifferent to social issues (Thane 1982: 61). Middle-class reformers already had access to common-sense explanations of the problems faced by young people but there now appeared scientific justifications to explain why they lacked the potential for intellectual and emotional development. Dyhouse (1981) observes that the concept of adolescence provided a significant means by which a pathological picture of working-class young people could be sustained.
