Abstract

Clement Attlee – the man who created the welfare state and decolonised vast swathes of the British Empire – has been acclaimed by many as Britains’ greatest twentieth-century Prime Minister. Yet somehow Attlee the man remains elusive and little known. How did such a moderate, modest man bring about so many enduring changes? What are the secrets of his leadership style? Guy Lodge finds out more. Attlee: A Life in Politics. Nicklaus Thomas-Symonds. I.B. Tauris. 2012
