The Governance of Britain

By Harold Wilson

Harper, 1977, 219 pp.

An insider's story: the workings of Britain's parliamentary democracy as seen from No. 10. Sir Harold describes the powers and functions of the Prime Minister as well as his relations with the Cabinet and the Commons. He writes with an urbane authority, and does not skimp on the personal reminiscence or the (always discreet) anecdote.
