Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

It is important that students have access to the original writing of the 'greats' in social policy. This book, combining Titmuss's essays with contemporary commentaries by eminent academics, is an excellent example of how best to do this. Martin Powell, Department of Social and Policy Sciences, University of Bath

With the NHS undergoing the most fundamental change in its 56 year history, this book is a timely reminder of important policy dilemmas that we ignore at our peril. This collection of Titmuss's writings brings together remarkably prescient commentaries on aspects of health, health care, and the NHS. British Medical Journal
