Editorial Reviews

Review

"Thorpe is not the first to wrestle [with Macmillan] but Thorpe’s account is the most intensively researched and most intimate portrait of all. Supermac has found a Superbiographer."  —Literary Review


"Splendid and surely definitive biography . . . a superb biographical achievement . . . succinct, frank and insightful."  —Sunday Times

About the Author

D. R. Thorpe's work on the constitutional history and politics of the 20th century has made him one of Britain's most respected historians. He has written biographies of Alec Douglas-Home, Anthony Eden, Selwyn Lloyd, Austen Chamberlain, Lord Curzon, and Lord Butler.
