The Governance of Britain - Harold Wilson

Weidenfeld & Nicolson and Michael Joseph, 1976, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper with a small closed tear to the foot of the upper pane, fading to the spine. Text complete, clean and tight but slightly musty.

From the cover: “Sir Harold Wilson's book on how Britain is governed is unprecedented: the first on this subject ever written by a man who has had the supreme responsibility for Government. Sir Harold analyzes the developing role of the Prime Minister’s office from Walpole to the present day, and gives a unique insight into the shifts of political power within and beyond government; the workings of the Cabinet; the office of Prime Minister; and all the multiplicity of individuals and organizations which together comprise the management ofa modern nation.”
