Policy analyst Richard Titmuss became famous as one of the most staunch and outspoken defenders of the welfare state and its underlying values, and in this book his daughter, Ann Oakley, offers us an inside view of his life and work. Oakley, a prominent sociologist herself, mixes biography and autobiography, telling the story of her father's life in light of her own experience and drawing on a mix of sources--including personal interviews and archival research--to set their family history in the larger context of social, economic, and political change in the twentieth century.

Carrying the intellectual force of an innovative thinker, yet written in clear, compelling language, Father and Daughter is a family story that is at the same time a reflection on gender, patriarchy, and the politics of memory and identity.
