Spurred on by a passion to reveal the truth, an impatience with hypocrisy, and an unwavering sense of the necessity of radical thought, Pimlott offers an account of the most important and influential movements and figures of the 20th century. This book brings together writings whose subjects range from premiers such as Churchill, Kennedy, Clinton, de Gaulle, Thatcher; rogues and radicals such as Maynard Keynes, Hugh Dalton, Barbara Castle and Ken Livingstone; war crimes, unemployment, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the end of British communism, the Royal Family, the future of the Left, and the future of political biography.
