The Crucial Years, 1939-1955Book - 1987
In the 1930s, mass unemployment was a secondary concern of British economic policy. In 1939, however, the war brought not only the fact of full employment, but also a commitment to its peacetime continuation--a commitment that, by 1955, was common to both Labour and Conservative governments. This book looks at Britain's employment policy during a time of great change, thoroughly analyzing its conditions, character, and implications for economic policy.
