Stanley Baldwin
Stanley Baldwin
By G. M. Young
Hart-Davis, 1952, 266 pp.

Although Mr. Young was asked, "somewhat languidly," by the late Prime Minister to write his life, this modest biography does not conceal Baldwin's shortcomings, especially in the field of foreign affairs, for which he had little talent and less interest. These shortcomings, however, are correctly put in the broader setting of the prevalent indecision and uncertainty of the 1930's.
