    The raison d'être of this work is to provide an historical analysis of the rise and subsequent co-ordination and consolidation of the Irish welfare state by focusing on income maintenance legislation in independent Ireland up to 1952. Originally undertaken as a project in social history, the completed work is a synthesis of social, economic, political and administrative history, discussion of all these areas being necessary to understand fully the timing, pace and extent of social welfare legislation.
