The British created a system wherein the social identity of civil servants clearly influenced their position on official matters. This privileged class set the tone for major policy decisions affecting all members of society. Savage addresses this social construction of power by analyzing the social origins and career patterns of higher-level civil servants as a backdrop for investigating the way four different social service ministries formulated policies between the two World Wars: the Board of Education, the Ministry of Agriculture, the Ministry of Labour, and the Ministry of Health.The English Civil Service and Its Influence, 1919a€“1939 Gail Savage. 104, 106-08 , 128-29; and social class, 10, 129; and treasury, 185. ... and Trade Disputes Act ( 1927), 143-44 New College, Oxford, 43 Newman, Sir George, 166, 184, 199-200 Newsholme, Sir Arthur, 161 Niemeyer, Sir Otto, 138, 200 Norwood, Sir Cyril, anbsp;...
