Description

This biography of Lord Randolph Churchill, whose life was dominated by politics, reflects the instability of political Victorian England and discusses Home Rule, Protectionism, grassroots Conservativism and Indian nationalism as well as his health, finances and uneasy personal life. It is the author's intention that the resulting picture carries wider implications for the study of the period in general and the biography of high politicians in particular. Foster is author of " Charles Stewart Parnell: The Man and his Family".show more
