Politics and Personalities is a collection of essays on British politics by the well-known commentator Dennis Kavanagh. The author turns his informed, and trenchant pen to such topics as the future of the Labour party, whether Thatcherism is Conservatism, the rise and fall of consensus politics, the role of the monarchy and the timing of general elections. The essays will enrich our understanding of recent developments in Britain and are an important contribution to contemporary political history.
