The welfare state has been one of the most significant developments in 20th-century Britain. This work narrates its principal changes and provides a thematic historical introduction to issues of finance and funding, providers and users and the role of the welfare state as a system of social stratification. Change and continuity are central themes, while the "moving frontier" between the state and other suppliers in the mixed economy of 20th-century welfare is also analyzed.
