This is a fascinating book. Of course I knew about William Wilberforce, but hadn’t realised quite how long his mission took. The details of the personalities and politics in this book are never dull, and the writing is so clear that they are straightforward to follow and to understand. His home life, set in the context of the time, is as interesting as his political life.

I found this book interesting. Even though I studied history at school I didn't know all the details about General elections during this Era. It seems to have been well researched and William Hague hasn't put too smooth a Gloss on Wilberforce's character in his early years.

William Hague wrote this account of William Wilberforce and makes a very valid biography of this important time in the abolition of slavery

A sensitive biography by a fine biographer. The remarkable lives and turbulent parliamentary times of outstanding characters of their age by a qualified interpreter; Someone who did battle over the dispatch box more recently. You should look into his Pitt. Don't be vague, ask for Hague!

Didn't expect it would be hardcover, and the condition was slightly lacking, but other than that it was great.
