Peerless. The Five Giants essentially define the contract between Government and people. If you want to understand the choices and trade-offs made by those in power then there is no better place to start than this giant of a book.

I am still in the middle of this enthralling book. It is superbly written, and although I have read about the subject before, I’ve learnt a lot from the earlier chapters. I recommend it unreservedly for anyone who wants to learn why British society is the way it is. A truly remarkable piece of political and social history.

Interesting reading, wonderful vision and to learn that today we are still arguing/discussing funding - nothing has changed.

A dense book but captivating and informing. It gives an excellent perspective on Britain's welfare system and where it came from and allows the reader to look at where it might be heading.
