1933 - 1966. (Lacking only three issues - 415, 466, 471). An amazing, highly unusual long run of this diverse publication.

A quick sample glance through the 495 issues offerd here immediately shows the range of articles : The Use of Statistics (1934). The Fuel problem (1935). The State of the Highlands (1936). The Health Services (1937). The Control of Rivers (1938). London Under Bombing (1941). Refugees in Britain (1944). The Unmarried Mother (1946). Employment of Women. The Opera in Britain (both 1948).

Graduate Wives (1954). The Cricket Industry (1956). Prospects for Nuclear Power (1959). Young Europeans in England. Housing Associations. Cartel Policies and the Common Market (all 1962). The Parliament of the European Communities (1964). [From the library of the naturalist and conservationist Richard Fitter, whos was a member of PEP for four of its early years.] Political and Economic Planning (PEP) was a British policy think tank, formed in 1931 in response to Max Nicholson's article A National Plan for Britain published in February of that year in Gerald Barry's magazine The Week-End Review. The original members included Nicholson and Barry, the zoologist Julian Huxley, the agronomist Leonard Elmhirst, the financier Sir Basil Blackett, the civil servants Dennis Routh and Sir Henry Bunbury, the research chemist Michael Zvegintzov, and Israel Sieff, a director of Marks & Spencer. Sieff was Chairman in the 1930s, followed by Elmhirst in 1939 and by Nicholson in 1953. It was a non-governmental planning organisation financed by corporations. This prolific organisation was influential in the formation of the National Health Service, World War II and post-war planning, and the development of the African colonies. After the war it shared the offices of The Nature Conservancy in Belgrave Square, London, producing reports such as Opportunities in Industry (1957) and Advisory Committees in British Government (1960). In 1978 PEP merged with the Centre for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP), and became the Policy Studies Institute (PSI). [VERY HEAVY - POSTAGE WILL NEED TO BE INCREASED.]
