Valerie Alasia is an indefatigable researcher into aspects of the history of Henley and other South Oxfordshire communities. She has contributed to a number of local history journals and most recently to the Victoria County History of Oxfordshire volume on Henley and its environs. This book is the result of many years’ research into the building of the Union Workhouse and the treatment of paupers there. It is a valuable addition to our understanding of how the authorities dealt with the most needy in Victorian society.
