Richard Titmuss (1907-'73) was a pioneer in the field of social administration (now known as social policy), holding the founding chair in the field at the London School of Economics for two decades. This reissued classic contains a selection of his most famous writing on social issues, covering subjects ranging from the position of women in society, changes in family life, the social effects of industrialization, the problems of an ageing population, and the development of the welfare state. In these pages, Titmuss also analyses the role of the United Kingdom's National Health Service, as well as its systems of pensions and social security, taxation policy, welfare benefits, and the underlying role of the state in all of these realms. Essays on the Welfare State is a potent distillation of Titmuss's influential thinking that still resonates today as society wrestles with many of the same issues.
