1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Junglies VINE VOICE on December 21, 2004
Format: Hardcover
Before I begin my review I want to acknowledge two debts. Firstly to the British government which introduced the idea of a system which would allow the children of lower income households to attend a Grammar School by virtue of their success at an examination at 11 years of age. Had that not been available I very much doubt that I would have ever had the access to education that I have enjoyed throughout my entire life. Secondly, I owe an intellectual debt to the Author of this book, Arthur Seldon, without who's fine editorial skills and prescient writings which have inspired me to see the world in my own way and to argue and campaign for change.

This book is a collection of shorter articles and essays written over an extensive period of years some of which predate the British Welfare State in the form that is known today and yet are remarkably accurate in their predictions of it's failings. Arthur Seldon writes not only from the intellect but also from the heart. His childhood experiences are a powerful influence on his thought and the power of the experiences come through loud and clear in his writings.

Unlike many of Britain's social reformers, Seldon was not born into a priviledged family. His first hand knowledge of loss and poverty contrasts starkly with those, then and now, who advocate economic and social reforms from a vantage point of economic and social security with little understanding of how the other half live other than the knowledge they might gain from surveys and other research tools. Seldon writes from the point of view of the common man who wants to make his own way in the world whether by working for someone else or from working for oneself.
