Zilliacus lived through turbulent years. He was an enemy of fascism from the 1930s, and after the Second World War worked against Cold War hysteria through meetings and contascts with Stalin, Khrushchev, Tito and Castro. Ernest Bevin hated the critical Gateshead Member of Parliament, and this led to his expulsion from the Labour Party. Zilliacus fought back and was re-admitted. In 1955 he won the parliamentary seat of Manchester Gorton for Labour. This biography, based on the Zilliacus Papers and other sources, traces the life of this remarkable man and throws light upon people and events over the first decades of the 20th Century. 'A brilliant biography of a brilliant man.' Tony Benn
