Summary
"Leslie Hore-Belisha began his political career in a 1930s Britain that had strong class-divides and deep traditions - there was limited scope for populist reform. But that's just what he set about doing. From enhanced public education in road safety to 'a burning desire to popularise the Army in the eyes of the nation', Hore-Belisha sought improvements across many areas of life. Along the way he experienced anti-Semitic prejudice that ranged from personal comments by fellow politicians to a full-scale smear campaign in the national press. But he remained resolute and initiated a far-reaching set of reforms that played a major role in shaping modern British society."--BOOK JACKET
