Books of the week


wilberforce.jpgI'm pleased to see that Ross Clark's witty exposee of the ridiculous rules and regulations we live by – How to Label a Goat – has gone into a well-deserved second edition printing.

Buy it here, from the ASI bookshop.

On a more worthy front, though, this week I'm recommending William Wilberforce, the new biography of the great anti-slavery campaigner, written by former Conservative leader (and fellow Yorkshireman) William Hague MP. It documents well the parliamentary tribulations he had to go to, which of course the author understands, being in the business himself. Wilberforce's campaign really was the work of a lifetime.
