Annotation:
This biography of the esteemed British historian Lord Acton (born John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton) shows him as one who achieved great status--he held a chair in history at Cambridge and edited the CAMBRIDGE MODERN HISTORY--but who regretted not turning his prodigious research into finished books. Acton is the author of the famous quote: "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."

Praise

New Republic
"There is much in this marvelous book that enlightens, and much that amuses." - Niall Ferguson 10/02/2000

New York Times Book Review
"Roland Hill does not sit in judgment on Acton. He is sympathetic, as a good biographer should be, but not sycophantic....Hill makes clear the main events and persons and ideas of his life." - John T. Noonan 10/22/2000
