ABSTRACT
This article discusses the book "In Place of Fear," by Aneurin Bevan. For the middle class intellectuals in the British labour party especially Bevan had his overwhelming attraction, here was a labour politician who could talk of socialism in such humdrum, realistic terms as the provision of free artificial limbs, hearing aids, spectacles and dentures to the low-income groups, and know exactly what he was talking about. As it appears from the book Bevan has never, forgotten those years, when he forged his views of class war from personal experience. He has never lost his hatred of the British conservative ruling class.
