The Benn Diaries : The Definitive Collection, Hardback Book

The Benn Diaries : The Definitive Collection Hardback

Edited by Ruth Winstone

Hardback

Description

Tony Benn was one of the twentieth century's most charismatic politicians.

The Benn Diaries, kept for almost seventy years, are a uniquely authoritative, fascinating and readable record of the political life of our times.

This single-volume edition is the selected highlights of the complete diaries from Tony's schooldays in the 1940s until he ceased keeping a record of his day-to-day thoughts in 2009.

The narrative starts with Tony as a schoolboy and takes the reader through his experience as a trainee pilot during the war, his tentative first days as a backbencher in Atlee's post-war government, through his battle to remain in the Commons after the death of his father.

From cabinet posts and leadership battles, through election highs ands lows to becoming a retired widower.

Tony Benn was a consistently radical voice campaigning for the causes he was passionate about.

This volume is the definitive legacy of the best political diarist of our times.
