Britiske statsministere 1900-2015. Fra Lord Salisbury til David Cameron is a history of all the British Prime Ministers of the last 115 years. The book draws vivid portraits of the lives of 22 very important politicians, and at the same time explains both Great Britain's own development and its role in the international community. The readers are taken on a remarkably exciting and scholarly journey through the political history of our time. In the course of 400 pages, the journey goes from the world's biggest colonial power at the end of the 19th century, through two world wars and a cold war in the 20th century, to this century's financial crisis and the war against terror. Our travelling companions include controversial and historically important leaders such as Lloyd George, Winston Churchill, Clement Attlee, Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair, but the book also discovers and records both the triumphs and the tragedies in the lives and the political careers of less famous Prime Ministers.This book will be a good read for anyone who has even slight interest in history, politics or people.Political scientist Øivind Bratberg is one of Norway's leading experts on Great Britain, and historian Hans Olav Lahlum is one of Norway's leading writers of political history.
