Product description

Review

"Magnificent... A compelling account of a remarkable life" (Observer)

"Campbell is simply a master of the art... This book is effortlessly superior." (Dominic Sandbrook Sunday Times)

"Marvellous... The highest praise I can give to John Campbell's biography is that Roy Jenkins would have been proud to have been its author." (Alan Johnson Guardian)

"A riveting and vital contribution to an understanding of postwar British politics." (Matthew Engel Financial Times)

"A wonderful, readable book. Jenkins himself would have been proud to have produced a masterpiece of this calibre." (Leo McKinstry Daily Express)

"Captivating... I read every single one of the 749 pages of this long book with relish and fascination. It is a splendid tribute to one of the greatest British politicians and writers (not necessarily in that order) of the last century." (Peter Oborne Daily Telegraph)

"Magnificent… As plump and benign as its subject." (A N Wilson Evening Standard)

"A splendidly thorough biography." (Craig Brown Mail on Sunday)

"Campbell is an excellent biographer. He has a strong narrative grasp and knows how to use evidence. His books are not showy, but if you test their propositions, you almost always find them fair." (Charles Moore Daily Telegraph)

"Wonderful... It is the well-rounded life of its subject that makes this book such an entertaining, as well as an instructive, read." (Rachel Sylvester The Times)

About the Author

John Campbell is the author of many biographies including one of Edward Heath, for which he won the 1994 NCR award, The Iron Lady: Margaret Thatcher, from Grocer's Daughter to Iron Lady and, most recently, Pistols at Dawn: Two Hundred Years of Political Rivalry from Pitt and Fox to Blair and Brown. He is married and lives in Kent.
