Editorial Reviews

Historian and biographer Bullock bit off a big mouthful with his three-volume life of British Labour politician Bevin (1881-1951); the first two appeared in 1960 and 1967, but the third, delayed until 1983 when some critical records became public, was so huge that it was capsized by its price and soon vanished. Here Brivati (contemporary history, Kingston U.) has trimmed stories that make the same point as others, or describe him dealing with the same sorts of problems, and left enough to give readers a full account of his life.
