Reviews - What do customers think about The Rebel Who Lost His Cause: The Tragedy of John Beckett MP?

Interesting story turned into a bore  Jan 31, 2001
Most readers of "The Rebel Who Lost His Cause" will probably conclude that John Beckett led a fascinating life during extraordinary times. Nevertheless, the author lets the story drag throughout much of the work, making a 215-page book feel much longer. The author depends too heavily on Beckett's own writings. Given that the author is the son of the book's subject, I would have liked to see a greater number of sources and more perspectives in this work. An author would have to TRY to make Beckett's life seem dull, but somehow, the author succeeded at doing just that.
A detailed, candid, and honest biography.  Jun 6, 2000
The Rebel Who Lost His Cause: The Tragedy of John Beckett, MP is a detailed and honest biography of the British Left Wing Labour MP who became the third ranking Fascist in Britain at the time of World War II. His career was one that was constantly accompanied by controversy and drama. His natural intelligence and wit, allied to his strong stands on contentious issues, marked Beckett for checkered Parliamentary life, but it was his association with Oswald Mosley that set many of his friends against him and brought an unsatisfactory end to a dramatic and traumatic public life. Biographer Francis Beckett provides an accurate, insightful, memorable, highly recommended account of a gifted, controversial man in a time marked by the drama of warring political philosophies, armies, and personalities.
