9780007436422: Cameron: Practically a Conservative

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

David Cameron is the first Conservative Prime Minister in a generation, and also the first leader of a coalition government for eighty years. But what is the reality behind his brand of repackaged Conservatism? And who is Cameron the man?

Here, for the first time, is an independent examination of the ‘saviour’ of the Conservative Party and the life that brought him to Number 10. Based on extensive interviews with his closest friends, his most senior lieutenants and his critics, it traces his meteoric rise from an idyllic, privileged childhood, to the heart of government by the age of 25, to leader of the country.

Critical and insightful by turn, this updated edition now covers Cameron’s first year as Prime Minister – a time that has seen unprecedented scandal in the political world, as well as challenges unique to the Conservative leader.

Review:

‘Invaluable … the fresh material makes clear the deep shock of failure in 2010 and the ad hoc mess of the early coalition’ Independent

‘Provides many insights…The authors underline the hard ambition and calculation behind the surface charm, raising fascinating questions about what Cameron might be like as Prime Minister.’ Peter Riddell, The Times

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

‘This readable and well-researched biography provides real insight into the great white hope of the Conservative party.’ Observer, Books of the Year

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