Portraits of some of his notable predecessors (including Baldwin, Churchill, and Neville Chamberlain) and essays on major themes (including "women in politics"), all from a time when Parliament was at the center of British public life. A wise and splendid work, obviously sharpened by the author's intimate knowledge of the political milieu. Superbly illustrated.
