Hearts and Minds: The Battle for the Conservative Party from Thatcher to the Present

By Oliver Letwin

FINE SIGNED COPY (RARE) Hardback and wrapper. Oliver Letwin. SIGNED COPY : Signed on title page296 pages RARE SIGNED COPY ON THE TITLE PAGEAn important new book by one of Britain's great liberal thinkers, Hearts and Minds is part memoir, part political history and part history of ideas.In it, former Cabinet minister Oliver Letwin explains how the central ideas and policies of the modern Conservative party came into being, how they have played out over the period from Mrs Thatcher to Mrs May, and what needs to happen next in order to make the country a better place to live. Far from being a sugar-coated version of events, Letwin tells a story that he hopes will persuade readers that politicians are capable of recognising their mistakes and learning from them and will show that social and economic liberalism, if correctly conceived, are capable of addressing the issues that confront us today. The book also describes Letwin s own journey from a remarkable childhood with American academic parents, via Margaret Thatcher's policy unit, into the very centre of first the Conservative Liberal Democrat coalition, and then the Cameron government, where, as Minister for Government Policy and then Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, every piece of government policy crossed his desk. It includes Letwin's personal reflections on two devastating electoral events: the EU referendum and the general election of June 2017.Please See Photos for Condition B3

Life in the Jungle: My Autobiography

By Michael Heseltine

2000. First edition. Hardbook. Very Good / Very Good. Hardback with wrapper first. Inscribed and signed by the author. Blue/gilt cloth hardback in illustrated DJ. 560pp. with many b/w illustrations. Autobiography of Conservative MP, Minister and Deputy Prime Minister. Retells vividly Heseltine's thrilling confrontations with Margaret Thatcher throughout the 1980s. "In this forthright autobiography he tells the story not just of his political life but of his business career as well - of his earliest commercial days running first a boarding-house and then a hotel in Bayswater; of how in 1962, as a property developer, he was almost forced into bankruptcy; of the way, after a disastrous start, he patiently built up his magazine empire to the point where it is today one of the largest private companies in the land. The book offers a number of personal glimpses.But above all, this is a tale of high drama and high politics - of the clash with Mrs. Thatcher over Westland in 1986 which led to his walk-out from her Cabinet, of the duel between the two of them that brought about her downfall in 1990 and of his own restoration to favour in the Conservative Party culminating in his becoming Deputy Prime Minister in 1995. If the top office at Westminster always eluded him, nothing much else did - as this vividly told story of a 'doer' rather than a 'blower' in politics amply demonstrates." Very Good Book and Very Good Plus Wrapper. B1
