At its centre is Roger Quaife, an ambitious MP determined to denuclearize Britain. His weapons: persuasiveness and a consummate skill in top-level diplomacy. In the committee rooms of Whitehall he plays with the highest stakes imaginable as he challenges the Government’s armaments policy.

He was educated from age 11 at Alderman Newton's School for boys where he excelled in most subjects, enjoying a reputation for an astounding memory. In 1923, he gained an external scholarship in science at London University, whilst working as a laboratory assistant at Newton's to gain the necessary practical experience, because Leicester University, as it was to become, had no chemistry or physics departments at that time.
Corridors of Power is the ninth book in C. P. Snow's Strangers and Brothers series. Its title had become a household phrase referring to the centres of government and power after Snow coined it in his earlier novel, Homecomings. A slightly rueful Foreword to Corridors of Power expresses the hope that he is at least entitled to use his own cliché. Corridors of Power is concerned with the attempts of an English MP to influence the country's policy on nuclear weapons in the 1950s.
Corridors of Power book. A wonderful, classical, book. Classical because Snow speaks essential truths and makes the effort to develop the "backstory" in as much detail as needed without losing sight of the main plot. The main line is a debate about what to do about nuclear weapons in midcentury England, centering on Parliament, where "the first priority is to assume power, and the second is to know what to do with it".

Charles Percy Snow was born in Leicester, on 15 October 1905. By some fluke, the title of this novel seems to have passed into circulation during the time the book itself was being written. He was educated from age eleven at Alderman Newton’s School for boys where he excelled in most subjects, enjoying a reputation for an astounding memory and also developed a lifelong love of cricket. In 1923 he became an external student in science of London University, as the local college he attended in Leicester had no science department. I have watched the phenomenon with mild consternation.
