The series was started as a result of a decision of the War Cabinet in 1942 when a team of professional historians, economists and sociologists was given access to official documents to study Government policy and experience during the war. The first volume, BRITISH WAR ECONOMY, by W. K. Hancock and M. M. Gowing, was published in June, 1949. PROBLEMS OF SOCIAL POLICY is a study of selected subjects within the vast range of the social history of the Second World War. The evidence has been drawn from an immense deposit of historical record-not only from the archives of Government departments in England, Wales and Scot- land, but from the unpublished records of local authorities and voluntary agencies who have helped the author, and from the many reports, surveys, journals and papers pub- lished by official and private agencies. By BAIN The three leading topics in the book-the evacuation of mothers and children, the work of the hospital services, and the social consequences of air attack-illustrate many of the human problems of the war. The author explains the origins and development of Government policy on these subjects, and starting with the Government's pre-war preparations to deal with air attack, traces the course of events through crisis and adjustment to the strains of war to the final stages of expansion and consolidation. The story is told against the background of the pre-war pattern of society and the changes forced upon that society by the demands of war. The investigation of concrete problems and the examination of the consequences of Government policy are pursued with special reference to the social services and to the war- time experience of local government. A special chapter has been set aside for a discussion of some of the fundamental problems which faced (and still face) local authorities in the day-to-day working of the health and welfare services. This is a book dealing with the impact of war upon human beings and social institu- tions. The author records a number of war- time developments which are now often included in the phrase "welfare state"; but he also examines the costs that were paid and their significance to the family-the effects of the separation of mothers and fathers and children, the break-up of homes, the neglect of educational needs, the delinquencies of young people and all the other deprivations and inconsistencies imposed by war. In his final chapter he draws a provisional balance sheet from the experience of six years of social movement and change.” This will be sent via Royal Mail 1st class signed for and dispatched within 2 working days.
