ANEURIN BEVAN by Michael oot


Email this review


This may very well be what the London Sunday Times called it when it appeared last year in England -- ""One of the great political biographies of this century"". It is leisurely but never plodding; closely detailed, but never cluttered; and written with immense care by a man who knew his subject well for over twenty-five years. What comes through in addition to the facts of Bevan's life is the flavor of the times and all the excitement aroused by this man who was probably the most imaginative proponent of democratic Socialism that Britain has ever known. This volume carries us only as far as Bevan's entrance into the Labor Cabinet of 1945.
