Social Insurance and Allied Services

By William Beveridge
Her Majesty's Stationery Office, 1942
299 pp.

This is the famous "Beveridge Report" which may not seem to many Americans as revolutionary as they had been led to believe. It will, nevertheless, reveal how much farther Britain has already progressed toward real social security than has the United States. Sir William's principal object, as set forth in his terms of reference from the government, was to expose discrepancies and inadequacies in Britain's existing social security legislation. His recommendations are aimed at correcting these faults.
