1 Hurd, Douglas Memoirs

A Fine unmarked copy with near Fine dustjacket. x + 534 pages. 61 illustrations. Few figures in modern British politics can match the extraordinary career of Douglas Hurd. A mainstay of the Conservative administration of the 1980's and 1990's, he was a Cabinet member for eleven years, and admired and respected on both sides of the Commons. His is a reputation that stretches far beyond Westminster and across the international stage. In these illuminating memoirs he looks back over his life, describing his rural upbringing in Wiltshire; his schooling at Eton and Trinity College, Cambridge; his early career in the diplomatic service, with postings in Peking, New York and Rome; and his tenure as Edward Heath's political secretary at 10 Downing Street in the early 1970's., before he became an MP in 1974. With the Conservative victory in 1979, Hurd entered government as a junior minister, and here charts his steady rise through the ranks to Foreign Secretary. **** NOT EX LIB **** **** A HEAVY VOLUME OF 1.02 KILO UNPACKED WEIGHT WHICH MAY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL SHIPPING COST ****
