This compendium offers seven political portraits of British Prime Ministers in the second half of the 20th century and the start of the 21st century: Edward Heath, Margaret Thatcher, John Major, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, David Cameron and Theresa May. Some of them were bright personalities who blazed a trail in the country’s history. Others were less powerful, fell victim to circumstance and are remembered as weak Prime Ministers. Based on a wide range of foreign policy and party documents, memoirs of famous politicians and diplomats and Russian and foreign historiography, the biographical sketches allow the reader to follow the protagonists’ activities against the backdrop of the most important historic events of the 20th and 21st centuries, right up to this point in time.

For historians, students and a wide readership.
