This is an updated edition of classic biography of the Labour leader who revolutionised the party and paved the way for Blair and Brown. When Neil Kinnock became Labour's leader in 1983, the party was at its lowest ebb since the war. Internal wrangling, problems of presentation and personality, as well as a formidable foe in Margaret Thatcher, conspired to keep Labour out of office for another 14 years. In that time, however, the party was transformed, and the changes began under Neil Kinnock. This paperback edition of Martin Westlake's acclaimed biography of the former Labour Party leader includes new, updated material considers his career as a reforming Commissioner in Europe, his leadership of the British Council and peerage, as well as his wife Glenys' career trajectory to become Minister for Europe.
