Shelves: politics
This is a wonderful biography of Aneurin Bevan the Welsh firebrand politician and the father of the NHS. Written by former Labour leader Michael Foot this is a wonderfully written and knowledgable account of Bevan's life and his politics. His loves and his dislikes. From being self educated former miner to British master politician especially post world war 2.
