Tony Benn's six best books

Tony Benn is a British Labour Party politician who was a Member of Parliament for 50 years and a Cabinet Minister under Harold Wilson and James Callaghan.

He shared a list of his six best books with readers of the Daily Express. One title on the list:
Chavs by Owen Jones

Owen Jones is a bright working class lad who has taken inequality and class division in modern Britain and examined the way that working class stereotypes are portrayed, particularly by the media, for whom 'Chavs' is shorthand for fecklessness and immorality.

It has rightly made his reputation as a brilliant young thinker and writer.
