Synopsis

Parliament and Politics in the Age of Churchill and Attlee The Headlam Diaries 1935-1951 by Stuart Ball

This volume publishes the private diary of a senior Conservative Member of Parliament, Sir Cuthbert Headlam, during the period of the Second World War. Clearly written and highly readable, it gives a fascinating inside view of British public life in those years. Because of its length and coverage, this political diary is uniquely important. It covers the period of 'appeasement' and the coming of the war, the conflict itself, and post-war Labour government and the development of the Cold War. It has much to say about figures such as Winston Churchill, Anthony Eden and Harold Macmillan.

Reviews

'The diaries nevertheless make major contributions in particular areas. The treatment of constituency politics is fascinating.'
