An Opinionated and Interesting Assessment of one of the most Successful Parties in the World
on 20 January 2012
The Conservatives - A History by Robin Harris is a very good book exploring the history of the Party from its origins in the Tory grouping of the late seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, through its formation as a modern party in the 1830s, to its current incarnation as the dominant party in the Coalition. The book primarily tells the story of the Conservatives through its numerous and diverse leaders who it is apparent have had a major impact on what the Party believes and aims to achieve. It is well-written, informative and opinionated with the author not afraid to show his views on individuals and events. Overall, a very good and immensely enjoyable book.
