If so, then the new history of British Liberal politics, Peace, Reform and Liberation, is just the ticket. Launched at Liberal Democrat conference by Paddy Ashdown and Shirley Williams, it is a one-volume history of the Liberal Party and its antecedents.
Currents in liberal thinking are also explained, with the book including biographies of key individuals, election results and a timeline of key events. It starts in 1679 (with a chapter co-written by myself) and takes events right up to 2011.
