5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent on Bevin, Labour, and Britain in the world 1945-51, 20 Mar 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Ernest Bevin (Hardcover)
Alan Bullock provides a fascinating insight into the experience of not only Ernest Bevin as a British Foreign Secretary during the years 1945-51, but also of the Labour party in government during those years. Of particular interest is Bullock's fine description of the multiple external pressures that Bevin was under in order to fulfill his role as a British foreign secretary (e.g. Britain's post-war economic bankruptcy, the emergence of the Cold War, the reconstruction of Europe and Germany, and the future of the British empire) as well as pressing personal circumstances (Bevin was a man of ill health, hence his premature death). In addition, the reader gets an often funny and warm portrait of a man burning for his political belief in a way which is rare to find today.
