Harold Wilson by Ben Pimlott



Description:

A gifted yet controversial Labour politician, Harold Wilson (1916-1995) sat on Parliament's front benches from 1945 to the end of his second term as Prime Minister in 1976, when he retired from politics. Among the defining concerns of his leadership was the need for industry and investment to keep pace with technological advance. This study of Wilson by Ben Pimlott (1945-2004) is recognized as a masterpiece of political biography; written in 1992, it was reissued in 2016 with a new foreword by Peter Hennessy.
