The course provides a basis for understanding the economic and social position of contemporary Britain, including the effects of two World Wars on economic and social trends, the difficulties created by the international depression of the inter-war years, and the main economic and social patterns in Britain since World War II. The course includes lectures on health, welfare and medicine.
