9781405040853: Brief Lives

In this fascinating and eclectic selection of biographical sketches, Bill Deedes remembers some of the key figures of the twentieth century. Political heavyweights such as Ramsay MacDonald, Stanley Baldwin and Anthony Eden are reassessed and reevalued, while record breakers such as Sir Edmund Hillary and Roger Bannister are shown to be far more than just their achievements. Deedes additionally looks at the lives of Imelda Marcos, Helen Suzman, Ian Smith, and more.
