Why don't you buy/ask for a book? Surely if you went into class the teacher wouldn't begrudge you one?

If you decide to buy a book, I recommend the L&L H. History books, there's two for the whole course, but there's loads of quotes etc. smile.gif

"The object of government in peace and in war is not the glory of rulers or of races, but the happiness of common man." - William Beveridge

"Beveridge had combined his long-standing commitment to contributory insurance - to build moral fibre and to prevent a new means test - with a new commitment to the state providing a national minimum," – Jose Harris (Beveridge’s biographer)

"Socialism was for Labour a symbol sufficiently vague to be impervious to mere day to mere day to day policies and events." – M. Pugh

"Ideology was subservient to the important tasks of organising electoral success." – A. Ball

"…[events after 1914 allowed Labour to] inherit the mantle of radicalism and to rally middle class and working class progressives under its wing." – M. Pugh

"The Luftwaffe was a powerful missionary for the welfare state." – AJP Taylor

"The overall impact of the war was to increase the dependence of many even among the better-off on state services…" - Bartlett

"The war was to have decisive influence in producing a common experience and universal treatment for it." - Fraser

"…[social security reform] constituted a major inroad into the principle of universality…" - Heb

"…[the NHS is] the greatest single achievement in the story of the welfare state." - Birch

"…[the Education Act] made secondary modern schools inferior to the grammar school in that they offered their children fewer opportunities" - Seaman
