The Men of 1924: Britain's First Labour Government

£20.00

Description

One hundred years ago, in January 1924, the Labour Party under Ramsey MacDonald formed its first ever Cabinet. The previous Conservative Cabinet of five Old Etonians and six Old Harovians was replaced with working class unionists, most of whom had left school aged 15. For the first time in Britain's history the Government could truly be said to represent all of society's social classes.

This unheralded revolution in representation is the subject of Peter Clarke's fascinating new book. Clarke's vivid portrayal is full of evocative portraits of this new breed of politician, the forerunners of all those who, later in the last century - and the next - overcame a system from which they had been excluded for too long.
