Upwardly Mobile - Norman Tebbit

Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 1988, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper.

Illustrated with B&W photographs.From the cover: “Norman Tebbit has made a reality of his vision of England and, with Mrs Thatcher, has overseen the most radical changes to British society since Lloyd George. How that has been achieved makes Norman Tebbit’s autobiography compelling reading for friend and enemy alike. Norman Tebbit by no means comes from a traditional Conservative background. Academic achievement and a strong sense of purpose took Tebbit first to grammar school and then the RAF which provided him with a fine substitute for university. During his career in BOAC as an airline pilot he was marked down as ‘unsuitable for management’, but his experience of negotiating on behalf of his union crystallized many of his views. In fascinating glimpses behind the scenes, Norman Tebbit reveals the true story of Mrs Thatcher’s rise to power and the vital part he played.”
