1 Cosgrave, Patrick The Strange Death of Socialist Britain - Post War British Politics
London Constable 1992 0094714304 / 9780094714304 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine 
A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. 271 pages. 17 illustrations. Patrick Cosgrave, the well-known political writer and biographer, here considers the history of British politics from 1945 to the present day. The first period stretches from 1945-1951, in which year the Conservatives returned to power. The second period runs from 1951-1979, and during this period, allowing for the hiccup of the Heath administration from 1970-1974, Governments of both major parties sought, with minor changes, to administer the revolution which Clement Attlee had bequesthed to them. The final period runs from 1979 to date, in which Margaret Thatcher set out to reverse the policies introduced after the war by Attlee and the concensus that broadly speaking existed between 1945-1979. This is therefore the story of revolution followed by consolidation, followed by counter-revolution.
