5.0 out of 5 stars Biography on the popular Shirley Williams, 2 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shirley Williams: The Biography (Hardcover)
This biography was a sympathetic but uncritical account of the long and eventful life of the popular Shirley Williams, even covering her religious beliefs and activism in the Roman Catholic Church, and looking into the reasons as to why she did not quite have the stomach pushing herself forward to becoming the Labour Party's first female leader, leading to the conclusion that inwardly she did not have the confidence in herself that outwardly she appeared to have.

Reading her time leading up to leaving the Labour Party and setting up the ill fated SDP and her clashes with the leadership were fascinating including why she avoided becoming a candidate for the Warrington byelection as she still harboured standing again in Stevenage.

I recommend this very well written book.
