John Bew – Citizen Clem

John Bew

Citizen Clem: A Biography of Attlee

About The Book

John Bew pierces the reticence of Attlee and explores the intellectual foundations and core beliefs of one of the most important figures in twentieth-century British history. It reveals a public servant and patriotic socialist, who never lost sight of the national interest and whose view of humanity and belief in solidarity was grafted onto the Union Jack.
