Salisbury: Victorian Titan (Phoenix Press) by Andrew Roberts
This is Roberts's masterwork, nearly 850 pages every one of which holds the attention. Salisbury was an even greater influence on the Conservative party than Disraeli, and Andrew Roberts shows in this portrait of a political giant why this is so. Apart from the portrait, it is a lucid account of politics and European affairs over the critical second half of the nineteenth century, out of which the terrible twentieth was formed.
