A period of English history sorely negated. I learn't a great deal from this interesting biography of the life of The 2nd Earl of Liverpool the longest Prime Minister in office. He really sounds like a most interesting person and I certainly didn't know he was the founder of the Portrait Gallery. A lot of our politicians could take a leaf or two from this book.

Excellent biography

Gash has produced a scholarly work on the life of this much neglected political giant of the 19th Century. The book covers the complete life of Jenkinson and sheds much light on interesting issuse like his relationship with his father and political contemporaries like Pitt, Grenville, Canning and Castlereagh. A reassessment must be made of his importance after a careful study of Professor Gash's work. No other Prime Minister had so much experience before becoming First Minister and no other Minister had to deal with so many contrasting difficulties- War, Revolt, Religious Toleration, Starvation, Urbanisation and Royal intrigues! An excellent introduction to the period and a scholarly biography.
