Reading Philip Stephens Politics and the Pound has reminded me how much I love reading political history, particularly with an economic slant.
I am about to get 3 weeks off. I would love to spend the child-free moments devouring more political memoires. So: any good suggestions? I have already got through a fair few:
Gladstone, Peel, Palmerston, Disraeli biogs;
Churchill War diaries, Jenkins, Wilson Healey Benn Crossman memoires/biogs
“One of us” on Thatcher, Alan Clarke, Lawson View from No11 from Thatcher period
Blair, Mullins, Darling, endless Rawnsley, Mandelson, Jonathan Powell from New Labour.
What reads really well? Tweet or comment, many thanks
