description 1943 1943 1940s 3 preliminary leaves, 9-62 pages : illustrations, diagrams PREFACE The main purpose of this book is to show in diagrams Britain's progress towards Social Security. Our poverty problem, and the measures for combating it, past and present and future, have been illustrated by the graphic visual means of coloured charts. In this way many vitally important facts can be presented in vivid, gay, and easy shape to the ordinary reader - facts and figures which would normally be buried in statistical tables which he has no time to unravel. Latterly the minds of all of us have turned more than ever to the future ; as a nation we are bent on social reconstruction after this war is won. That is also the intention of this book ; it might have been entitled What Is and What Might Be. Although this is not primarily a treatise on Sir William Beveridge's Report, the proposals in his Plan have been naturally taken as the best guide to the future. True, that Plan has so far only been given a general blessing by the Government; indeed, they dissent on some important features. When their official scheme is worked out in full and passed into law, then it must clearly be accorded first place. But that has not happened yet, and meanwhile the Beveridge Report contains the only coherent plan for building social security in Britain ; therefore its main provisions for the reform of our social insurances and allied services have been described and illustrated in the later pages of this book. 15X/2/566/303
