    Bringing together author's speeches, thoughtful journalism and passionate advocacy of often unconventional causes, this book showcases his powers of original thinking and communication over the decades.

    Tony Benn was one of the twentieth century's most charismatic politicians. The Best of Benn showcases his powers of original thinking and communication over seven decades. From 'the baby of the house' to a retired widower, he was a consistently radical campaigning voice on issues such as the death penalty, the case against the European Union, opposition to war and support of workers' rights. This volume brings together Tony Benn's electrifying speeches, thoughtful journalism and passionate advocacy of often unconventional causes. "Tony Benn belongs in the great tradition of English revolutionaries - a passionate radical destined to be loved in popular memory for his defence of democracy and freedom." (Guardian). "He had the facility to reach across generations and re-energise the debate about what should and should not constitute the common good." (Observer).
