Ideas Have Legs - Peter HowardLondon: Frederick Muller, 1945, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Edges of the dust wrapper somewhat frayed with a little loss. Gently faded at the spine. Pages lightly age-tanned.
From the cover: “Ideas Have Legs is the story of the next twenty years in the making.
In the many-coloured perspective of one eventful life we meet the men and ideas that shape our times — and will shape the future. Churchill, Beaverbrook, Lenin, and a host of others step through these pages. We move with Howard through Fleet Street and farm, Twickenham and Westminster.
And all the time, amid the strengths and frailties of statesmen, the humours and labours of war-time farming, the thrills of international rugger and the world bobsleigh championship, runs an idea which illuminates the world situation and makes plain the British way ahead.
Howard has found a new momentum for his pungent political pen. His diagnosis has the refreshment of hope. He goes beyond criticism to cure.
Peter and Doe Howard have stakes in the future — Philip, Anne, and Anthony, their children.
This book dares to look into the future with realism and confidence. Its pages echo to the tramp of the marching ideologies bidding for the mastery of the world. “Ideas took legs, and the legs began to march,” says Howard.
In Ideas Have Legs, Howard presents the answer — Britain’s Big Idea which is destined to outmarch all others.”
