Social Progress in Britain

Anthony F. Heath

  • Examines how much progress has made in the years since Sir William Beveridge described the 'five giants on the road to reconstruction' - the giants of Want, Disease, Ignorance, Squalor and Idleness
  • Written in a clear, accessible style
  • Provides an analytical and comparative approach, bringing British progress into perspective by drawing comparisons with progress made in other large developed democracies
  • Provides the long view, showing long-term change rather than focussing on recent changes, giving a wider context in which to understand modern Britain
