This may be called the official life of the late British statesman, for it is written by one of his nieces on the basis of his private papers. The first volume goes down to 1906, when the cabinet which he headed was defeated. The second touches on the World War, Zionism, the Peace Conference, the Washington Conference, etc. This sympathetic but not overdone portrait adds little to our knowledge of the man or his period.
