Product description


'Williamson's is the best book on Baldwin yet … He deserves all possible credit for the diligence of his research, the breadth of his vision and the rigour of his analysis.' The Times Literary Supplement

'… a masterpiece of craftsmanship, insight and persuasion … the best book on Baldwin … Williamson speaks with unrivalled authority … of general importance about politics in modern societies.' The Spectator

'Williamson argues his case convincingly, with a superb mastery of the primary sources … His … study puts the three-times premier back at centre-stage, as the most important politician in interwar Britain.' History Today

'Baldwin is the best book yet written about its subject.' The Times

'… outstanding …' Kenneth O Morgan, The Independent

'… ambitious … Williamson fulfils his intention to demonstrate a more productive method of studying a politician's career than is usually supplied by the standard life.' London Review of Books

'… a valuable addition to the literature on pre-1945 politics.' Anthony Howard, New Statesman

'Philip Williamson['s] … meticulously researched and thoughtful work … contains many insights and fascinating revelations.' Ben Pimlott, The Guardian

Book Description

This study of a commanding Conservative politician is a major contribution to understanding Conservative ideology, 'Englishness' and the nature of British political leadership. It reinterprets the career of Stanley Baldwin, three times prime minister during the difficult 1920s and 1930s, and shows how his extraordinary dominance was based upon manipulation of widely held 'national values'.
