Description
The conservative Party has been in office for the greater part of the postwar period, yet to date no one has written a history of its social policy, in government and out. In this book, timothy Raison-a former Education an Home Office minister and founder of New Society-traces the way in which the Tory approach to the welfare state has developed since the days of Beverage and 1944 Butler Education Act. In a work of narrative history, rather than of party propaganda, he carries the story right up to the major legislation of 1988, moving from the coalition era of nearly fifty years ago to the advance of the radical right in recent years. The work ends with two speculative chapters about the next phase and an invaluable statistical appendix on what actually happened.
