About the Authors
  • First published in 1951, the essays in this volume were the result of the extensive use in public administration of economists and other academic specialists in the field of social studies during the Second World War. Apart from the introduction by Sir Richard Hopkins, the contributions to this volume were restricted to economists and other university teachers who had come into the Government's service during the war and had returned to their pre-war occupations subsequently. The essays thus offer unique accounts of wartime administration in Great Britain from contributors who had direct personal involvement in the Civil Service.
