"There is much in this marvelous book that enlightens, and much that amuses."
"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."
From the Publisher
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."
