The 1942 Beveridge Report (named after its author, Liberal economist William Beveridge) famously argued for state intervention to do away with the 'Five Giants': squalor, ignorance, want, idleness, and disease. Received with considerable popular acclaim, the Report was also -- as cartoonist Charles Leslie Illingworth depicts here -- political dynamite. The explosive changes of the immediately post-war era can at least in part be traced to its charge.
