Abstract

This extraordinary book considers the qualities of leaders from the most electorally successful of British parties, among them some of the towering figures of British political history, and places each in the context of their respective time and political landscape. From Robert Peel to David Cameron, and featuring twenty-two Conservative prime ministers since the inauguration of James Ramsay MacDonald, this book offers an analytical framework by which those leaders may be judged, and a detailed personal biography of each. This book will provoke discussion and debate as well as providing an essential guide to understanding British political history through the prism of the men and women who created it.
