Overview

This book is offered on the assumption that a comprehensive new reading of Gladstone is necessary and possible. The quantity of fresh materials made generally accessible since 1968 at St. Deiniol's Library, Hawarden, at the British Library, and in The Gladstone Diaries constitutes something of an invitation in the imperative mood. Such, at least, was my sense when Messrs Hamish Hamilton invited men in 1974 to undertake a biography of Gladstone.
