Excellent Historical Overview of Post-War Prime Ministers,
This review is from: The Prime Minister: The Office and Its Holders Since 1945 (Hardcover)
Hennessy provides a succint and enlightening history of British Prime Minister's since 1945. Beginning with Clem Attlee, through Churchill, Macmillan, Eden, Douglas-Home, Wilson, Callaghan, Thatcher, Major and Blair, he covers each premiership with amazing depth, revealing the way in which they dealt with this high office.
A tremendous book - highly interesting and at times entertaining. Someone once described the political biographer Ben Pimlott as 'The X-Ray' - in Peter Hennessy he has a rival!
