Where There's a Will - Michael Heseltine

Hutchinson, 1987, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the spine ends and corners with commensurate ruffling to the dustwrapper. Text complete, clean and tight.

Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Need a politician possess a coherent vision of the kind of society in which he would like to live? In the months since Michael Heseltine resigned from the Cabinet he has been able to expand his thoughts on government into a general review of what the future of the Conservative Party should be — and what Britain should fight to become. Where There’s a Will is a personal testament, a book of ideas, an autobiographical reassessment. It includes many illustrations from his personal life (once when his business was in difficulty he had to sign any chit for 50p or above; within weeks of starting his first government job he found himself authorising spendings of £6m) but also his views on the need for a British industrial strategy, the real meaning of the North-South divide, the underlying challenge of the inner cities and the proper role and management of government in attacking these and other problems. He faces the reality of continuing high levels of unemployment, sets out his vision of our European destiny and looks at it in the context of our relationship with the Superpowers. His prescription is one of radical reform, carried out with energy, efficiency and a sense of genuine partnership.”
