Crossing the Floor

Reg Prentice and the crisis of British social democracy

Geoff Horn

Published by Manchester University Press

This new biography provides an account of the career of Reg Prentice, one of the most controversial figures in modern British political history. He remains the most high-profile politician to cross the floor of the House of Commons in the post-war period, and his defection was reflective of an important 'sea change' in British politics.
