9780826423801: Westminster: A Biography: From Earliest Times to the Present

This is the remarkable story of Westminster, a royal capital that became the birthplace of parliamentary government and the centre of a world power. It is about the place, its people and their close relationship. They have made and shaped one another. The ancient heart of Westminster is only the size of a village, yet it boasts world famous buildings: the Abbey, the Houses of Parliament and Number 10 Downing Street. As befits a village, Westminster is rich in folklore and gossip, yet its story is central to Britain's history and anywhere that has parliamentary government.

This biography of Westminster traces the extraordinary transformation of a secluded island on the banks of the Thames into a spiritual centre, a royal ceremonial stage and a political capital. It brings to life the monarchs and prime ministers for whom Westminster has been home, the architects and writers whom it inspired, and the protestors and rebels whom it provoked. It is a tale of inspiration, intrigue, power, protest and terror.

Book Description :

A biography of Britain's centre of power and royal ceremony.

About the Author :

Rob Shepherd was Reuter Fellow at the University of Oxford and is now a programme editor for BBC television and radio producing on Straight Talk with Andrew Neil.

He has been a Special Adviser in Whitehall, a parliamentary lobby correspondent and an award-winning television producer whose fly-on-the-wall documentary for Channel Four, filmed inside Number 10, the Cabinet and the Foreign Office won Europe's Prix Stendhal.

His gripping account of the plotting that brought down Margaret Thatcher in 1990, The Power Broker Brokers: The Tory Party and its Leaders, is rated as 'required reading' by The Times and 'way ahead in the field'. He has written acclaimed biographies of Enoch Powell and Iain Macleod. He collaborated on John Biffen's book, Inside the House of Commons: Behind the Scenes at Westminster, and Jim Prior's memoirs, The Balance of Power and a contributor to the New Dictionary of National Biography and the Oxford Companion to 20th-century British Politics.
