Book Description

Originally published in 1966 and translated by Bernard Miall, Gladstone traces William Gladstone’s career from his election to Parliament in 1832, to his funeral in Westminster Abbey. The book portrays Gladstone as a firm adherent of Toryism and it describes his relations with Peel and Palmerston, as well as giving a well-founded account of his growing Liberalism and his rivalry with Disraeli. Eyck has written a generous and perceptive account of Gladstone’s life and career which since its first publication in 1938 has become generally recognized as a valuable contribution to the history of the nineteenth century.
