Callaghan's Journey to Downing Street Reviews


'This is indeed 'high politics' par excellence ... The background research is impressively complete and far-reaching ... there is much to reflect on in this fascinating book.'- J. Graham Jones, Morgannwg

'This book offers an excellent insight into the tenacity and resilience of an often-underestimated political figure. It also represents an important contribution to our understanding of the significant way in which power has both operated and been manipulated within the upper echelons of the post-war Labour Party.' - Richard Jobson, History

'[This] carefully crafted and thoroughly researched study....adds color and depth to the orthodox picture of high politics in the Wilson-Callaghan era.' - Kevin Jefferys, Journal of British Studies
