Haworth/Hayte, "Men Who Made Labour"
Publisher: Routledge | 2006-07-25 | ISBN 1845680472 | PDF | 284 pages | 3.1 MB
Celebrating the centenary of the Parliamentary Labour Party, this fascinating book commemorates the twenty-nine founding Labour MPs elected in 1906, including Labour's first Prime Minister, first Chancellor of the Exchequer, first Minister of Labour, and a Nobel Peace Prize winner.
With a foreword by Tony Blair, Men Who Made Labour focuses on the pioneer' origins, expectations, world vision and achievements in the context of early twentieth-century conditions, when the prospect of any Labour government was still a distant dream.
Drawing upon a vast array of previously unpublished material, and with obituaries primarily written by the twenty-first century successors to those original MPs, the text provides a unique insight into how today's politicians view their part's past... ensuring that it is an excellent resource for all politics and modern history students, as well as general readers with an interest in the area.
