Product description

Review

"This is a closely argued book which offers an intelligent and spirited defense of Laski." --"Guardian"

"For many of us in the Labor Party, over a period of some 20 or 30 years, Harold Laski was our guide, philosopher, and friend, performing each particular role." "--Observer"

"Newman concentrates upon Laski's ideas and politics, but does not neglect any important aspect of his life. His book is searching, sober, well-argued." "--New""Left Review"

"In this beautifully written, minutely researched and very thoughtful book, Professor Newman has at last provided Laski with the biography that he so manifestly deserves." --"Journal of Imperial and Commonwealth History"

"Mr. Newman's brilliant book is eminently worthy of his subject." -- "Jewish Chronicle"

"Justice has now been done in Michael Newman's excellent, well-researched, and eloquent biography. It has the supreme merit of bringing together Laski's roles as theorist and activist." "--New Statesman and Society"

"Explains Laski's intellectual evolution and the elements of continuity in his political thinking very well indeed." "--Economy and Society"

"A lightly written, readable, and well-documented account which brings its subject vividly to life . . . Newman's account of the life of this martyr to optimism is worth reading." --"Political Studies"
