Overview

If Conservative Member of Parliament Michael Portillo had retained his seat at the political expense of John Major, he would now be British Prime Minister, elected by an extremely narrow margin of Tory voters. So posits the last of 21 essays ruminating on (largely British) political "what if?" questions. Presented by the Chairman of the Liberal Democrat History Group and the Director of the Conservative History Group, the essays consider such "what if?" scenarios as the disappearance of the Liberal Party in the 1950s, political agreement between PM Harold Wilson and the British unions, and John F. Kennedy surviving the assassination attempt in Dallas. Distributed in the US by ISBS. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
