The son of a carpenter, Edward Heath broke the patrician mould of Tory leaders. He pioneered free enterprise Conservatism ahead of Thatcher. He committed Britain to Europe. With accomplishments outside politics - in music and international sailing - he is the most multi-talented Prime Minister this century. Yet his period in office, which began with such high hopes in June 1970, collapsed in chaos and humiliation after only three-and-a-half years. In this powerful, bestselling biography, John Campbell shows us a nation undergoing a social and psychological revolution and, at its centre, a man of vision and integrity whose legacy will shape British history for decades to come.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"It holds the reader from the first page to the last. That - plus the beating of a long-needed historical path through the thickets of the early 1970s - makes it a truly special contribution to contemporary history." -- Peter Hennessy * The Times Educational Supplement *
"I do not believe a better biography of Ted Heath will ever be written... We feel we know him." -- Matthew Parris * The Times Literary Supplement *
"An outstanding book - over 800 pages and not a word wasted." -- John Bruton * Irish Independent *
"Judicious, generous and finely written." -- Ben Pimlott * Independent on Sunday *
"John Campbell's massive and highly impressive biography takes us a long way towards understanding this ambiguous but powerful figure [who has] shaped our affairs fundamentally over the past 30 years." -- Kenneth O. Morgan * New Statesman & Society *
