In complete contrast to the previous reviewer (Mrs Measures) I did not find this biography at all pro-Mosley or justifying the BUF. In fact a little basic research would reveal that Skidelsky is in fact half Jewish and was a member of the Labour Party at the time this book was written - so unlikely to become an apologist for a Fascist and anti-Semite. The problem with biographies of any controversial figure, particularly of the 'Right', is that unless the book sets out to either demonise or ridicule it is seen as biased. It is unfortunate that 'academia' is so warped by left-wing ideology that anything written which does not toe the line is attacked as politically motivated. What this biography tries to do is paint a reasonable picture of Mosley, and try to understand why he made the decisions that he did - without the hysterical attempts at a hatchet job which is all most other biographers seem to manage. Skidelsky was attacked when his book was published for not writing a book that was more anti-Mosley. That fact I think speaks volumes about the political motivations of its detractors.
