8vo - 21 x 14 cm.; xi - 448 pp. Grey cloth over boards with black lettering on spine. Corners are bumped, boards are soiled and the spine is browned. Beveridge (1879 - 1963) was the first director of the London School of Economics and is considered to be the chief architect of the British Welfare State. He was associated with social activists such as Sidney Webb, Beatrice (nee Potter) Webb, and Rev. Samuel Barnett (founder of Toynbee Hall - the grand-daddy of the faith and social-activist inspired "settlement houses") . Beveridge displays the wonderful British mind in his descriptions of monstrous human situations, all done with that wry sense of wit and humour, overlaid with a passionate desire to better the situation. A clear and removable archival cover has been fitted.
