New on my bookshelf
I've just gone on a Labour history second hand book spree and bought:
The Road to Brighton Pier - Leslie Hunter (1959) - the story of "how the Labour Party almost destroyed itself in the turbulent years between the resignation of Nye Bevan from the Cabinet in 1951 and his miraculous escape from expulsion in 1955".
The Labour Party Conference - Lewis Minkin (1978) - explores who wielded the block vote in the '70s.
In My Way - George Brown (1970) - the "fighting memoirs" of Wilson's deputy.
The House the Left Built - Michael Hatfield (1978) - how the Labour Party ended up in 1974 with its "most left-wing programme in thirty years".
Has anyone out there read any of these and if so, any recommendations on which one to start first?
