A milestone biography that brings this extraordinary man to life. He brought calm to the nation and popularised the modern role of the prime minister. In spite of universal suffrage and the growing political importance of the Labour party, Stanely Baldwin, a small-c and big-C conservative, was the dominant political figure in Britain in the 1920s and 1930s. He kept England safe for the likes of the Crawleys for a generation after the end of World War I.
