Editorial: We must learn from the past
CPAG turns 50 this year. This leads us, in this issue of Poverty, to take a few moments to look back into our past. We see through Pat Thane's account of our formation how, from the start, CPAG's tale has blended research, social movements, inspiriational individuals and Harold Macmillan's (reputed) 'events, dear boy, events'. It has been a story intertwined with the social history of our time.
