Reseña del editor:

'Easily the best single-volume, cradle-to-grave life of Clement Attlee yet written. Professor Bew updates but also betters all the other biographies with this intelligent, well-researched and highly readable book. Scholarly and perceptive, it tells the story of how quiet determination and impeccable political timing wrought a peaceful revolution.' Andrew Roberts

Clement Attlee was a slightly-built, bald, pipe-smoking and unassuming man who presided over the radical administration of 1945-51 and is sometimes referred to as Britain's greatest peace-time Prime Minster. His cocooned suburban childhood and standing at university as 'the man who couldn't quite' were unlikely preparations for such a figure. Attlee was often underestimated: he fooled those who compared him unfavourably to his rival, Churchill and undercut their doubt with dry wit and proof of his steady and insightful leadership. Yet his life deserves a place alongside the Churchill legend. It is difficult to think of another individual who can better tell the story of how Britain changed from the high imperialism of Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee of 1887, through two world wars, the great depression, nuclear age and the Cold War, and the transition from empire into commonwealth.

This book will pierce the reticence of Attlee and explore the intellectual foundations and core beliefs of one of the most important figures in twentieth-century British history (arguably the most important); and that he remains underappreciated, rather than simply underestimated. It will reveal a public servant and patriotic socialist, who never lost sight of the national interest and whose view of humanity and belief in solidarity was grafted onto the Union Jack.

Called a sheep in sheep s clothing , his reputation has long been that of an unassuming character in the shadow of Churchill. But as John Bew s revelatory biography shows, Attlee was not only a hero of his age, but an emblem of it; and his life tells the story of how Britain changed over the twentieth century. Here, Bew pierces Attlee s reticence to examine the intellect and beliefs of Britain s greatest - and least appreciated - peacetime prime minister. Nº de ref. del artículo: AAZ9781780879895
