Tony Benn was one of the most enigmatic and controversial politicians of the post-war era. This comprehensively revised edition of Jad Adams’s classic biography is written with unparalleled access to Benn’s private records, and chronicles the behind-the scenes story of Benn’s bitter battles with every leader of the Labour Party since Gaitskell. It details his service in the governments of Wilson and Callaghan, his role as a champion of the left during the Labour Party’s long period in opposition, his retirement from Parliament to ‘spend more time involved in politics’ in 2001, and his subsequent emergence as a leading figure of the British opposition to the war in Iraq.
