ISBN: 0715811681 A reprint of the 1961 edition, which was a reprint of the 1952 original edition, which was published on the tenth anniversary of the Beveridge Report. The 1952 edition reported on the progress of welfare-state reforms. The 1976 reprint has a foreword by Jennie Lee, Baroness Lee of Asheridge (1904-1988).

An excellent artifact for understanding the roots of the current global debate regarding welfare statism and unbridled global capitalism.
