02 Richard Titmuss, Professor at the London School of Economics and Political Science, adviser to governments and prolific author, was instrumental in shaping the new discipline of Social Policy and Administration. He made a valuable contribution to social philosophy through his attempt to integrate welfare into its broad social context. In this revised edition of his well-known book, David Reisman relies on the whole of Titmuss's work, unpublished as well as published, to explain and evaluate the theories of this provocative but often difficult author.

'Like Durkheim's and Weber's, Titmuss' reputation as one of the great innovators in the social sciences will survive and grow. His achievement will be the subject of continuous review and reappraisal. David Reisman's book is greatly to be welcomed as one of the first contributions to that debate and as an exciting and original work in its own right'. - Robert Pinker
