Arthur Henderson is a pivotal figure in the emergence of the British trade union and labour movement. Along perhaps with Herbert Morrison and James Callaghan, he has been the central and most representative personality in the British Labour party’s evolution from being a party of protest to becoming a party of power. Professor Chris Wrigley, an outstanding authority on British labour developments, traces his career from trade-unionist to international statesman.
.,."Scholarly, thoughtful and well- researched...Henderson epitomises the strength and limitations of Labourism: a man of dogged determination and of rock-solid loyalty, he was instrumental in the building of Labour into a serious competitor for power." -Parliamentary Affairs
