About the Authors
  • First published in 1913, during a period when tuberculosis remained a massive problem in terms of British public health, this volume constitutes an argument for the state provision of sanatoriums. Written shortly after the passing of the 1911 National Insurance Act, a key event in the development of the welfare state, it also provides an argument for the socio-economic benefits of strengthening the country through government intervention. Created for a wide circle of readers, particularly those involved within the burgeoning state infrastructure of the time, the book is concise and highly readable. It will be of value to anyone with an interest in the welfare state, British history, and the history of public health.
