5.0 out of 5 stars Humorous but insightful., 9 April 2008

This review is from: The Strange Death of Tory England (Paperback)
For most of the twentieth century the Conservative Party dominated British politics, however by the end they had been routed at the polls and appeared to have nowhere to go. Geoffrey Wheatcroft's book explains in a thought provoking but sometimes humourous way how the Conservative Party lost its way. His main conclusion seems to be that the era of Conservative dominance from 1979-1997 was in fact bad for the Conservative Party as a whole as it gained a reputation for being the nasty party due to its introduction of necessary but unpopular free market reforms. This meant that the old Tory One-Nation Conservatism which had been successful in the past was displaced by free-market radicalism which became increasingly unpopular and ultimately led to defeat in 1997 and also the Party becoming controlled by free market radicals who were dogamtic in their belief. All in all this is a very good book.
