    Description
    A. J. P. Taylor was one of the most popular and important historians of his generation. This collection, including six television lectures published for the first time, brings together his incisive portraits of prime ministers from Walpole, Pitt the Younger, Gladstone and Disraeli to Lloyd George, Chamberlain, Churchill and Eden. It provides provocative analyses of 'How Wars Begin' - who else would have stressed the role of railway timetables in the origins of the Great War? - and 'How Wars End'. And it assembles a wonderful set of more miscellaneous pieces on everything from Manchester to William Morris, gastronomy, CND and the possible 'lessons of history'. A must for all Taylor's many admirers, this book also forms an ideal introduction to a uniquely wide-ranging, witty and stimulating historian.
