London 2000 Soft cover Revised New. No Jacket Issued Book CONDITION: NEW 2000 Continuum trade paperback, revised by Margaret Hebblethwaite. CONTENT: Hebblethwaite has combined ... superlative research with the ability to arrive at a judicious assessment of an issue. This is a work in which the broad lines of John's life and those of the other dramatis personae are continually illuminated by telling details and incidents.

His capacity for standing back and smiling at his subjects-a very English quality in a biography-is one of the book's great strengths. In the end Hebblethwaite's achievement is to bring back to us a powerful sense of Pope John's personality and his views on some of the most pressing issues of our time.
