Pressestimmen"this is a very important - and timely - book which is directly relevant to the policies of the present government. The arguments for privatisation which Richard Minns describes, analyses and destroys are arguments for the progressive dismantling of the Welfare State and its replacement by market forces. He calls it a Cold War in welfare and so it is - being skilfully promoted by bankers and city merchants, supported in the media and now accepted by most political leaders - in the name of modernisation. If we are to defeat this dangerous campaign we shall need to be well informed about what is happening and why - and this book gives us all we need to know." - Tony Benn
