1st edition. "In this revisionist biography the authors reveal how, almost unsupported, Harold Wilson tried to defend himself, his party and British democracy against the machinations of our secret state and its alliies in the media and in the Tory Party. That he almost succeeded is a tribute to both his courage and vision.....The secret history of the years 1964 to 1979, which reveals the influence covert politics played in determining just how Britain was to be run. Smear! provides abundant evidence of how the Wilson governments were undermined at every turn." Pp.xiv/402, owner's illlustrated bookplate (Peter Bridger) to inside front board. Green cloth, rubbed to top edge, dustwrapper. VG/VG.
