9780091799991: Dare to be a Daniel: Then and Now

Tony Benn was born in a house on the Embankment which - ironically - later became the site of the Millbank Tower, centre of Labour spin. Next door lived Sidney and Beatrice Webb, and politics were Tony's life-blood from the very beginning (his father was a Cabinet minister). This warm, affectionate, brilliantly funny account reveals how he developed his ideas and ideals from the extraordinary late-Victorian/Edwardian world of his parents, and how his conviction that the world should be changed has its origins in early experiences.
