Information
First edition, first print hardback of THE TORIES (Conservatives and the Nation State 1922-1997) by Alan Clark and published by Weidenfeld & Nicolson, London in 1998. Signed by Clark on the title page.

The book is in very good condition (Clean black cloth boards with silver lettering on the spine) with some minor wear to the dust jacket, which is not price clipped (rubbing to edges, moisture staining along the inside top edge just visible from the outside). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no other inscriptions.

The Tories is Alan Clark's personal account of the modern Conservatives, who for the better part of the twentieth century were the governing political party of Britain.

During this period the country fell in stature, both comparative and absolute, by virtually every criterion of measurement which can be applied. Yet the Conservative Party's primary objective, or so it claims and its supporters believe, is to advance and protect the interests of the British Nation State.

To understand the catastrophic and repetitious failure of the Tories to attain that objective, over most of a seventy-five-year period, Clark examines afresh personalities and argument on occasions as diverse as the Gold Standard dispute of 1925; the abdication of King Edward VIII; the failure of Appeasement; the mishandling of North Sea oil; and the alternating inspiration and hubris of Margaret Thatcher.

493 pages, including Index. Illustrated with black & white photographs.
