The Best of Benn

Tony Benn was one of the twentieth century’s most charismatic politicians. The Best of Benn, edited by Ruth Winstone is a collection of letters, diaries, speeches and other writings that showcase 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.

We publish this collection alongside the DVD release of Will and Testament – the much admired film about Tony’s life. To celebrate both, we are offering three sets of book and DVD. To enter, please head to @WindmillBooks on Twitter.
