The Unservile State

Essays in Liberty and Welfare

George Watson (Redaktør)

Serie: Routledge Library Editions: Welfare and the State 23

Originally published in 1957, The Unservile State looks at the theme of liberty in the Welfare State. Has it survived Welfare - is it even better for it? What of Parliament and our civil liberties? Does the present state of property distribution, of industry, agriculture and our social services satisfy the Liberal mind? And what would a liberal policy for foreign and Commonwealth affairs be like? These are some of the questions which this book sets out to answer. Les mer
