The history of Britain since the Second World War can be written largely in terms of her prime ministers from Attlee to Blair. Indeed, many today think the prime minister, all-powerful, almost a presidential figure. Most of the essays in From the New Jerusalem to New Labour, have been written by historians personally acquainted with those who rose to the top of the greasy pole. How did they reach No 10? What sort of people were they? What were their aims? What difference did they really make? What, finally, is the impact of personality on politics? Accessible and stimulating, these essays shine a powerful light on the direction of postwar politics.
