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. This book will pierce the reticence of Attlee and explore the intellectual foundations and core beliefs of one of the most important figures in 20th century British history.

An interesting biography of a Prime Minister whose status in British history continues to rise. I have one caveat. It would have clarified the text if the literary examples had been printed in italic. Otherwise full of detail and comment. I would recommend reading it with The Maisky Diaries.
