This chapter comments on the approaches and methods of the Charity Organization Society (CSO) social workers in London. It suggests that the London caseworkers lacked the rigor and forceful and optimistic determinations of their counterparts in Melbourne, Boston, and Minneapolis. These COS caseworkers were simply more detached to the poor, had less interest in pursuing and questioning the poor, and were less determined in making progress.
