They enhance the contemporary revival of interest about the merits and drawbacks of schemes for universal grants. The chosen extracts come from texts originally published in America, Belgium, England and France, and span the end of the eighteenth to the middle of the twentieth century. They reveal the wide geographical and temporal extent of such schemes. The editors' introduction places the different proposals in context, and draws parallels between present and past debates."--BOOK JACKET+-+6143648596+-+6143648596+-+6143648596Fri Mar 21 15:38:36 EDT 2014batch3568
