Stafford Cripps : the first modern Chancellor by Christopher Bryant( Book )

11 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stafford Cripps was the only person who ever came close to ousting Winston Churchill during the Second World War, yet there has not been a biography of him since 1957. His life was full of contradictions. Schooled at Winchester he was for at least eight years the most radical of all Britain's senior politicians. Extremely Conservative in personal taste, he was revolutionary in his politics. A Communist sympathiser in his forties he was, in his fifties, Labour's most fiscally responsible Chancellor of the Exchequer. He attacked the institution of the monarchy, yet was a close friend of some of the most Establishment Conservatives." "As political careers go his was a roller coaster which started late. Having turned down a place at New College, Oxford to train as a chemist, at the age of 40, in the dying months of the Labour government he was made Solicitor-General by Ramsey MacDonald and joined the Cabinet even before he had secured a parliamentary seat. By the time of the General Election of 1945, he was appointed President of the Board of Trade in Attlee's first government. In 1947, having mounted an unsuccessful attempt to oust Attlee, he was given the new post of Minister of Economic Affairs and, only a few weeks later, was made Chancellor of the Exchequer and Minister for Economic Affairs, thereby combining for the first time the whole of the economic brief in one post."--Jacket
Parliament : the biography by Christopher Bryant( Book )

3 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This second volume of Chris Bryant's majestic Parliament: The Biography has a cast of characters that includes some of British history's most famous names: the Duke of Wellington, Sir Robert Peel, Gladstone, Disraeli, Lloyd George, Churchill and Thatcher. Its recurring theme is reform and innovation, but it also lays bare an obsessive respect for the past and a dedication to evolution rather than revolution that have left us with a fudged constitution still perilously dependent on custom, convention and gentlemen's agreements."--Jacket

Entitled : a critical history of the British aristocracy by Christopher Bryant( Book )

8 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Exploring the extraordinary and sometimes pernicious social and political dominance enjoyed by the British aristocracy over centuries. [this book] explains how a tiny number of noble families rose to such a position in the first place and reveals the often nefarious means they have employed to maintain their wealth, power and prestige. It examines the greed, ambition, jealousy and rivlary [that] drove local barons to compete with one another and aristocratic families to guard their inheritance with phenomenal determination. In telling their history, it introduces a cast of extraordinary characters; fierce warriors, rakish dandies, political dilettantes, charming eccentrics, outrageous snobs and criminals who got away with murder."--Jacket

The story of Rich Peppiatt, a tabloid hack who snaps over his newspaper's fixation with sensationalism over substance and titillation over truth.

Parliament : the biography by Christopher Bryant( Book )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This first of two volumes takes us on a 500-year journey from Parliament's earliest days in the thirteenth century through the turbulent years of the Wars of the Roses and the upheavals of the Civil Wars, and up to 1801, when Parliament--and the United Kingdom, embracing Scotland and Ireland--emerged in a modern form. Chris Bryant tells this epic tale through the lives of the myriad MPs, lords and bishops who passed through Parliament. It is the vivid, colourful biography of a cast of characters whose passions and obsessions, strengths and weaknesses laid the foundations of modern democracy."--Book jacket
