The Cripps version

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Almost as new hardback. Small tear on dust cover, and 2 small marks on hard cover. Pages clean and bright.

Sir Stafford Cripps was one of the towering - and distinctive - figures in British public life in the 1930s and 1940s. He was responsible more than anyone else for shaping the settlement which led to Indian independence. In 1942, when he was credited with bringing Russia into the war on the Allied side, and again in 1947, he was seen as the man who should take over as Prime Minister if Churchill or Attlee fell. Yet his image is forever associated with "austerity" - a vegetarian, teetotaler, a devout Christian and easy to caricature. This long-awaited biography, by one of Britain's leading 20th century historians, is the first to be written with complete access to his private and public papers, and immediately supercedes everything else.
