The Handbook on Social Insurance, in keeping with the plan of the series, aims to present impartially general information and leading arguments pro and con on this important social question. In addition to an introduction and the material on the general subject, historical and otherwise, reprints are included on Workmen's Compensation, Health, Maternity, Old Age, and Invalidity Insurance, Benefits to Widows and Orphans, Mothers' Pensions, and Soldiers' and Sailors' Insurance; the aspects of compulsory and state insurance are also covered. A large selected, classified, and partly annotated bibliography is also given. The brief aims to sum up leading general arguments on the subject rather than to particularize on any specific form of social insurance. It can be adapted to many variations of the subject.
While designed specifically for debaters, the Handbook aims to present compact, comprehensive, and up-to-date information in a popular form for all students and readers. No effort has been made to use highly technical material and details of interest mainly to experts.
For excellent earlier material on the subject the reader is referred to the Debaters' Handbook on Compulsory Insurance, and to that on Mothers' Pensions, both compiled by Edna D. Bullock, and partly covering the field of the present Handbook.
