"The Diaries of a Cabinet Minister" covers the turbulent years of Harold Wilson's government. When Richard Crossman began to keep a political diary in 1952 he was a Bevanite activist, a member of the National Executive Committee and an Opposition backbencher of the House of Commons without hope of office. Controversy was then tearing the Labour Party apart and he felt that, if no one kept a chronicle of it, future historians would be unable to piece together any coherent picture of what went on inside the Bevan group at that time. In 1960 Bevan died, and three years later so did the party leader, Hugh Gaitskell. Crossman helped Harold Wilson to gain the leadership and, within the year, the Party found itself once again in office, with Crossman a Cabinet member at the Ministry of Housing. At this point the diary was to become all the more exhilarating and valuable.
