' ... excellent study.' J. Colman
"Dutton's analysis offers the first comprehensive overview of welfare state evolution in France in English...Dutton's work is intended primarily for professional historians, but should be accessible to graduate students and advanced college students." History
"Although this is a book of finely crafted history, complete with ample archival sources and rich empirical detail, it will be of interest to a much larger readership than period or area scholars only. This is the case particularly because Dutton is interested in the associational origins of the welfare state, a topic that has generated a great deal of research of late." Canadian Journal of Sociology Online
"The major strength of this carefully-researched, well-written book is the rich account that it offers of the struggle for control over social policy by major interest groups and sectors in the interwar period. Dutton's book is a fine contribution to the limited literature on this subject." American Historical Review
"This is an important and informed work. Highly recommended." Choice
