    Abstract

    Book synopsis: Giving an account of the uncertainties and conflicts which accompanied the expansion of the state role in the provision of benefits, the book analyzes the principles in the development of war pensions, national insurance and industrial injuries provision and medical, rehabilitation and re-employment services. The emphasis is on the nature of the policy choices which were made in the period spanning the two World Wars and the influences and conflicting interests which affected the decisions made. The analysis illuminates why the resultant policies were often incompatible. The main principles governing disability benefits remained in place after 1946 but they were subsequently developed and modified in important respects. The postscript discusses some of the issues which still present dilemmas for policy making in this area.
