'...an excellent textbook covering the period from the late eighteenth century to the present day...and one which will surely become the standard introductory text.' - Alan Deacon, British Book News
'The purpose of this fine book is...the course of British social policy since the Industrial Revolution...this is a very good work with an excellent bibliography and a documentary appendix.' - Donald R. Neat, Historian
'For its intended use as a text Fraser's study is an improvement on earlier work. Particularly on the nineteenth century The Evolution has some original things to say. Fraser's discussion of the Old Poor Law for instance is excellent...this is a good and most useful piece of work.' - Bentley B. Gilbert, Victorian Studies
'Dr Fraser's excellent discussion on social policy since the Industrial Revolution...is not merely a history of social policy but a discussion of the interaction of ideas and action in the field of welfare.' - Linda Dove, The Teacher
