William Gladstone was, along with Winston Churchill, one of the most important prime ministers in BritainUs history. He spent 63 years in the House of Commons and was prime minister four times, a unique accomplishment. This book also touches on his roles as a classical scholar, a wide-ranging author, a voracious reader, and an avid walker. Photo inserts.
From the Publisher:
A definitive biography of one of Britain's greatest nineteenth-century politicians and statesmen describes the life and times of William Ewart Gladstone, his ideas and contributions, and his role as prime minister, founder of the Liberal party, and political orator. Reprint. 25,000 first printing.

Praise

Evening Standard (London)
"A triumph."

Atlantic Monthly
"Gladstone's latest biographer hesitates to claim that he was the greatest of all premiers; for one thing, unlike the two William Pitts, Lloyd George, and Churchill, he never led his country in the supreme test of war. But Roy Jenkins has 'no doubt that he was the most remarkable specimen of humanity of all the fifty who, from [Robert] Walpole to [John] Major, have so far held the office of British Prime Minister. Few who read this utterly absorbing life will disagree with him." - Geoffrey Wheatcroft January 1997
