Politics is for people by Shirley Williams( Book )

16 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in English and German and held by 587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Review text: Shirley Williams is probably the most prominent and certainly the most admired of the people who are founding a new Social Democratic Party in Britain which they hope will bring about a fundamental realignment of politics. This book is not only an event in British politics,.. it is also a lucid, thoughtful, and informed analysis of the problems of the contemporary welfare state not only in Britain, but also in other Western Countries, especially the United States... I am reminded of Lester Thurow's recent book, The Zero Sum Society, which takes up some of the same problems and from a similar point of view... Mrs. Thatcher has often said 'There is no alternative' and partisans of the American welfare state have recently been confronted with the same challenge. This book is one of the first thoughtful replies

Shirley Williams has been a towering figure in British politics for over forty years. Now Baroness Williams, her views continue to challenge. Secretary of State for Education in the Callaghan government of the 1970s, she was at the helm when comprehensive schools really began to take off. If we hadn't had the comprehensive revolution this country, we would not have anything like the skill base or the intellectual base it has today she says. In an illuminating discussion, she reveals that she feels the present government exerts a degree of centralised control, which I really do think actually quenches the fires of aspiration, idealism and vision. As a supporter of the Tomlinson report, she tells Ted she would have made her apologies and left government if she' been forced to turn down his recommendations

In 1914 Vera Brittain was eighteen and, as war was declared, she was preparing to study at Oxford. Four years later her life - and the life of her whole generation - had changed in a way that was unimaginable in the tranquil pre-war era. TESTAMENT OF YOUTH, one of the most famous autobiographies of the First World War, is Brittain's account of how she survived the period; how she lost the man she loved; how she nursed the wounded and how she emerged into an altered world. A passionate record of a lost generation, it made Vera Brittain one of the best-loved writers of her time
