9780007436422: Cameron: The Rise of the New Conservative

A fully updated edition of the first major biography of David Cameron, now covering his first year as Prime Minister and leader of the coalition government

David Cameron emerged as the first Tory leader in years to come across as a man of the people, an ordinary man in a traditionally reviled political position. This biography reveals more about the man behind the spin. It explores the future direction of the Conservatives and looks at several important questions: Is the current honeymoon evidence of a new Tory Party, or simply recognition that the appearance of newness is needed? Will he really be prepared to jeopardize the support of the traditional grass roots? How deep are his environmental credentials? How will he react when the press turns nasty? Does his success mark a return of the old class deference? Or is it the opposite, a sign that background, for better or worse, is now unimportant?

About the Author:

Francis Elliott writes for the Independent. James Hanning is executive editor of the Independent on Sunday.

Review:

"Anyone hoping to penetrate Cameron's still rather opaque political personality will want to buy this book, which in readable . . . form offers much ammunition to both his admirers and detractors . . . This book gives a clear and convincing account of how Cameron raced past far better-known and more experienced rivals to become leader of the Tory party."  —Daily Telegraph

"If anyone doubts Cameron's classic Tory credentials, then this highly rewarding biography lays out the story brilliantly."  —Sunday Telegraph

"This essential political textbook will be required reading for every journalist covering David Cameron's every move until the general election."  —Independent
