Product Description

Review

"Catherine Hall's insightful and compelling dual biography of Thomas Babington Macaulay and his father Zachary. . . is able to make the Macaulays illuminate many different historical themes and purposes. . .She confidently locates father and son within their intellectual and political milieu, emphasizing the importance of the Scottish Enlightenment and the stadial theory of human progress."--David Arthur, "Times Literary Supplement"--David Arthur"Times Literary Supplement" (09/20/2013)

"If Hall's book inspires some readers to turn back to Macaulay's essays and "History of England," all the better."--Jacob Heilbrunn, "The Daily Beast" --Jacob Heilbrunn "The Daily Beast "

David Arthur, "Times Literary Supplement"--David Arthur"Times Literary Supplement" (09/20/2013)"

"Catherine Hall tells the story of father and son with consummate skill. Not only is "Macaulay and Son "important for understanding imperial Britain, it is a beautifully crafted history. Rather than offering a strictly biographical study, Hall draws upon the two men's lives and writings in order to explore key themes. James Epestein, "Victorian Studies"
--James Epstein"Victorian Studies" (11/01/2015)"

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I found this book very interesting and well-written. It is very beneficial to learn how much racial and cultural prejudice Lord Macauley had, despite hi great learning. His private life is also surprising and rather shocking.
