There were few more controversial British politicians of the
twentieth-century than Enoch Powell. There were few more brilliant,
and yet, whilst being an MP for thirty-seven years, his ministerial
career lasted a mere fifteen months. His influence however was
enormous not least as a harbinger of Thatcherism. There was much
more to him though: he was a Professor of Greek at the age of
twenty-five: a brigadier at the age of thirty-two: he was also a
poet, biblical scholar and devoted family man. The word
'definitive' is hackneyed but in describing this biography it can
be used legitimately. Not only was Simon Heffer able to interview
Enoch Powell he was also given access to Powell's massive private
archive. 'In future, anyone who want to study Enoch Powell will
start here'. Bruce Anderson, Spectator First published in 1998,
this biography has been out of print for a number of years. Demand
for it however remains constant and Faber Finds is happy to meet
