Summary
"The author argues that France simultaneously pursued two different paths toward universal social protection. Family welfare embraced an industrial model in which class distinctions and employer control predominated. By contrast, protection against the risks of illness, disability, maternity, and old age followed a mutual aid model of welfare. The book examines a broad cast of actors that includes workers' unions, employers, mutual leaders, the parliamentary elite, hauts fonctionnaires, doctors, pronatalists, women's organizations - both social Catholic and feminist - and diverse peasant organizations. It also traces foreign influences on French social reform, particularly from Germany's former territories in Alsace-Lorraine and Britain's Beveridge Plan."--Jacket
