Waterstones Says

Written by key figures in British politics and edited by leading political commentator Iain Dale, this fascinating collection charts the motivations, achievements and failures of the fifty-five British Prime Ministers.

A Times Political Book of the Year

'Many of my predecessors were giants, some had feet of clay, all possessed human foibles.' - From the foreword by Boris Johnson

It has almost been 300 years since Sir Robert Walpole arguably became the first holder of the office of Prime Minister in 1721 - an office which today is under scrutiny like never before.

The Prime Ministers, edited by leading political commentator Iain Dale, brings to life all 55 of Britain's 'First Among Equals' with an essay for each office holder, written by key figures in British politics. From the obscure 18th-century figures like the Earl of Shelburne to 20th-century titans like Churchill and Thatcher, this book provides a much-needed reminder about their motivations, failures and achievements.

“A very useful reference book”

This is an ambitious project - 55 essays about each of our Prime Ministers inevitably is divided in my mind between those I remember (Harold Wilson onwards) and those who came before them. Of course I have my own... More

“Lovely present”

This was my Christmas present to myself as I love reference books. It is a very handsome volume. I shall enjoy dipping in to this book every time I want to know anything about a British Prime Minister.
