Attlee's Great Contemporaries
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
After his retirement, Britain's post-war Labour Prime Minister penned a series of profiles of his contemporaries for the Observer. Collected in book form for the first time, they are of immense historical interest, and infused with his intellect, idealism, and respect for character. Their subjects range from Labour's founding father, Kier Hardie, to Nancy Astor, the first woman MP, and include characteristically generous appraisals of political opponents such as Winston Churchill and Harold Macmillan.
