The Peckham Experiment A study of the living structure of society

By Innes H. Pearse, Lucy H. Crocker Copyright 2006

    First published in 2006. This volume looks at the Peckham Health Centre Experiment which over five years, the health-parenthood, the family and the home was the subject. The experiment needed time for the families to congregate and to function, and time for the scientist to understand what he saw. This book is evidence of how greatly time was needed and the observations made.
