Dr. Kevin Hickson, senior lecturer in British politics at the University of Liverpool, and co-editor with Andrew Crines of the new book Harold Wilson: The Unprincipled Prime Minister? (Biteback Publishing, 2016)

Will be speaking on:

‘Harold Wilson and British Socialism’


Wednesday, 26th October, 2016, at: 17.00-18.30pm,


Room JG5002, Penrhyn Road campus, Kingston University,

Kingston-on-Thames, Surrey

The talk will explore the ways that interpretations of Harold Wilson’s premierships (1964-70 and 1974-76) have changed over time. Was Harold Wilson, Britain’s leader at the time of the ‘Swinging Sixties’, a socially reforming modernizer, or merely a manager of Britain’s overall decline? Moreover, what lessons does his leadership perhaps offer the Labour party in its present-day predicament?
