Overview

To restore Gladstone to his proper context in that world on the other side of the looking glass, the political world of 'old' or classical liberalism, to set forth what he hoped to achieve, how well he achieved it, and in what respects it was worth achieving---this is a difficult task.

To meet him here as he ranges over the whole Gladstonian saga is a most welcome, a highly stimulating event....A fascinating and judicious book, full of important insights into the liberal past.
