New Machiavelli by Michael Foot

Book Description

A successful author and Liberal MP with a loving and benevolent wife, Richard Remington appears to be a man to envy. But underneath his superficial contentment, he is far from happy with either his marriage or the politics of his party. The New Machiavelli describes the disarray into which his life is thrown, when he meets the young and beautiful Isabel Rivers and becomes tormented by desire. At first, he struggles to resist and remain focused upon his familiar political, personal and social life. But as he soon learns, it is harder than he could have imagined to turn his back on love.

Books By Author Michael Foot

Aneurin Bevan by Michael Foot Aneurin Bevan, Paperback (January 2009)

Describes Aneurin Bevan's life from his birth in Tredegar in the South Wales Valleys, through his abortive schooling, his employment at a colliery and the subsequent embrace of socialism that would make him a leader among South Wales miners.

Pen and the Sword by Michael Foot Pen and the Sword, Paperback (January 2009)

Focusing on 1710-11, this title illustrates how Jonathan Swift published one of his most devastating polemics "The Conduct of the Allies" that tore into the Whig government and the Duke of Marlborough in particular. It is an important moment in English History: the pen and the sword fought a duel, and the pen proved the stronger of the two.

Autobiography of Bertrand Russell by Michael Foot Autobiography of Bertrand Russell, Paperback (March 2000)

Bertrand Russell was one of the most influential figures of the 20th century and his autobiography is one of the most compelling and vivid ever written. This compact paperback edition contains an introduction by Michael Foot.

Rights of Man and Common Sense by Michael Foot Rights of Man and Common Sense, Hardback (September 1994)

The author is celebrated for the part he played in both the American and French Revolutions. Though an Englishman by birth, he reacted violently against the political order of eighteenth-century England and in favour of radical reform. This title elaborates his political and social theories in vivid, simple prose.

Author Biography - Michael Foot

H.G. Wells was a professional writer and journalist, who published more than a hundred books, including novels, histories, essays and programmes for world regeneration. Wells's prophetic imagination was first displayed in pioneering works of science fiction, but later he became an apostle of socialism, science and progress. His controversial views on sexual equality and the shape of a truly developed nation remain directly relevant to our world today. He was, in Bertrand Russell's words, 'an important liberator of thought and action'. Michael Foot is a former Leader of the Labour Party. He has written many books, including works on H.G. Wells, Aneurin Bevan and Jonathan Swift. Simon J. James is Lecturer in Victorian Literature at the University of Durham. He has written on, and edited works by, George Gissing, H.G. Wells and Charles Dickens. John Partington is the author of many books and essays on H.G. Wells' political thought and science fiction, including Building Cosmopolis. He is the editor of The Wellsian, the annual journal of the H.G. Wells Society.
