Memoirs of the Deputy Prime Minister in Harold Wilson’s Labour government during the 1960s. Although no longer well-remembered other than by afficionados of British politics, one particular legacy remains which George Brown probably would not have appreciated. Known among his contemporaries for his love of alcohol, attributed to the pressures of holding high office, the euphemistic phrase ‘tired and emotional’ was allegedly conjured up by Private Eye magazine to describe his frequently odd public appearances when ‘under the influence’.

As you can imagine, this is a fascinating book.

Hardback, pp299 + 25 plates.

VG+ in VG (creased and rubbed) dustjacket.

Gollancz, 1971. ISBN 057500696X
