Barbara Castle was one of Britain's true great socialists. Although she didn't always reach the right decisions, she never wavered from her core beliefs in making a better society; her passion for a morally socialist Britain was inspiring. This book needs to be read by anyone interested in the more ideological political times ranging from the Second World War to the late 1970s (especially if you're left-wing). My only minor criticism is that the book seems to have more than its fair share of proofreading errors, but don't let that put you off. Castle was a pioneer of what feminism should be!
